Whisky Tasting Notes

Nose: A lovely nose with a winey character. Marzipan, creamy butter, bread and peanuts. Sweet spareribs, straight from the barbecue, some grilled sausages and a coastal character with sea salt, chlorine and peated barley betray it’s a Caol Ila indeed.

Palate: Full, sweet and drying, with honeyed spareribs, red fruits and spicy oak.

Finish: Wonderfully salty, savoury and long, with burnt hazelnuts, walnuts, dried meat, plums, grilled pineapple and orange zest.

About Single Note

Single malt scotch whisky and jazz music are Rick van Diepen's passions.

Rick has been a whisky enthusiast since the 2005, when he did an exchange program in Edinburgh. He joined the University's whisky society and visited distilleries across Scotland. Caol Ila distillery was his favourite. So that's where he started with this Caol Ila. It's a small batch of just 74 bottles. You can read Ed's review of Single Note Caol Ila here.
