Caol Ila-35 year old

Sold for HK$ 6,200 (US$ 799) inc. premium
Caol Ila-35 year old
Bottled 2018. Distilled and Bottled at Caol Ila Distillery, Islay
Bottle number 1755 of 3276. In original carton. Good label. Level: into neck. "...Mouth (neat): it was shy on the nose when neat, it's rather brutal on the palate. Green lemons, wasabi, cider apples... I know, all that is very green. It's troubling that such an old malt would be this unruly and almost brutal, but the high strength gave it away, anyway. No, I'm not saying they should have reduced it, not at all. With water: there, citrus. Citrus will save any whiskies. Grapefruit and lime. Finish: long, sharper, lemony, fresh... To think that this is thirty-five years old! A touch of coconut in the aftertaste" (5 Stars-Whiskyfun)
700ml. Single Malt., 58.1% volume.
