CAOL ILA 2012 The Disappearance Chess Investigation Series 46%

Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Islay, 70cl, Ref: 57873

Quantity limited to 2 bottle(s) by client.

The Disappearance marque le troisième embouteillage de la série Chess Investigation, une enquête autour de la célèbre distillerie d'Islay, Caol Ila. D'une impressionnant versatilité, ce single malt semble pouvoir s'adapter à tous les types de fûts, en ne cessant d'affirmer son caractère. Cette version, distillée en 2012, a terminé sa maturation en fût de sherry de premier remplissage pendant 14 mois. La couleur sombre de la robe laisse présager de l'influence du vin de Xérès qui se confirme à la dégustation, pour le plus grand plaisir des amateurs du genre. Un duo sherry-tourbe explosif qui fonctionne à merveille, embouteillé réduit à 46% afin de laisser s'exprimer la fumée, les épices et les fruits noirs. Traditionnellement utilisés dans la maturation des whiskies écossais, les fûts de sherry ont laissé la place aux fûts de bourbon sur la deuxième moitié du XXe siècle. Ils reviennent aujourd'hui sur le devant de la scène, aux côtés de vieillissements et d'affinages innovants et pour le moins expérimentaux : fûts de vin, de Champagne, de bière, de rhum, de Cognac, de Calvados, de Chouchen... De quoi alimenter la diversité des eaux-de-vie de malt !

Une édition limitées à 305 bouteilles.

Concentré, fumé. Pruneaux, orange confites, réglisse salée, chocolat.

The brand

As well as reflecting its smoky, malted barley, Caol Ila is also oily and peaty, with marine and vegetable notes. Its recent official bottlings, which are particularly expressive, have an intense smoky and peaty character with a good balance of saltiness and sweetness. Superb versions of this single malt have also been released by independent bottlers Gordon MacPhail & Signatory Vintage. Caol Ila’s stills, which are large and onion-shaped, have a strong influence on this single malt and give it a fairly light and delicate character. Find out more

Merchant

Although the independent bottler Signatory Vintage cannot claim to be one of the oldest in Scotland, it has managed to build up an extremely solid reputation amongst the great malt connoisseurs. The creator of the famous range The Prestonfield and many other well-known ranges, it is best known for its un-chillfiltered and cask strength bottlings that offer amateurs the chance to enjoy their whisky in its most natural form. It was also one of the first independent bottlers to acquire a distillery and now offers a growing number of expressions of one of the most artisan single malts available.
