Caol Ila 13 Year Old | Discovery Range
Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: Gordon & MacPhail 70cl / 43%
A 13-year-old Caol Ila from Gordon & MacPhail bottled for the new Discovery Range.
We were so impressed when trying the whiskies from this range that we could not believe the RRP. In our opinion, they are better than a lot of whiskies at twice the price, and these are a must-have for anyone as an introduction to G & M bottlings...
Nestled nicely in the smoky section of G & M's Discovery Range this Caol Ila shows what peated whisky is all about.
The Discovery Range from G & M was created to give an introduction to their portfolio. The range is split into 3 distinctive parts - Bourbon, Sherry, and Smoky and these parts are highlighted by the colour of the packaging -
Green for bourbon
Purple for sherry
Cream for smoky
The whole range gives whisky lovers a tour of various flavour profiles and characters, and showcases what Gordon & MacPhail are good at.
Nose: Sweet vanilla and dried cured meat aromas with peat smoke undertones are complemented by banana and apricot.
Palate: Ripe banana, kiwi with vibrant hints of fresh citrus.
Finish: Long sweet and smokey.
