Not to bore you with the technical data of Moscatel sherry wine, but what is important to note is the taste profile of the wine so you can have an idea of why your beloved Caol Ila is showing you a softer, more delicate side. Moscatel is sweet, honeyed, and often showing tastes of peaches, apricots, and oranges and is rarely bottled on its own.

Tasting Notes

"The folks at Diageo chose correctly the type of wine to finish a peated, oily whisky. Honey and smoke are first to catch your attention with the focus turning to malt and summer ripe peaches. The peat smoke is a constant. The richness of the whisky isn't cloying and as you finish the sip, you will notice a dry, spice filled conclusion."
