Mackillop's Choice (distilled at Caol Ila), 26 year old, 1979 vintage, 43%

Price: $135.00 Issue: Summer 2006 Reviewer: John Hansell

Mature and gentle, when compared to the 1990 expression above. If the flavors of the 1990 Caol Ila reviewed above are nakedly exposed, then this Caol Ila is wearing a winter coat. The same flavor notes are there, but they’re less noticeable. Pleasingly salty, gently drying finish.
