Caol Ila "smoke on the water" 1996/2008 bottle issued for whisky fair "whisky live Verviers"
wow... impressive bottle. one i would LOVE to try. nicely done.
yes, lovely bottle i found in a nearby shop, along with two other funny musically named whisky fair bottles, Longmorn "walking on the moon" and Strathisla "here come the rain again"
I'm (i was) not even a particular fan of Caol Ila, but this one, nomen est omen, is fascinating. Even though cask strength at 56.6%vol , this doesn't need a single drop of water. Smoky yet very balanced.
