Caol Ila Stitchell Reserve (2013 Special Release)

Single Malt — Islay, Scotland

4.25 out of 5 stars
I've been holding off having another pour of this for months just due to a desire to get another bottle. I won't get into it but I'm a bit frustrated with the search. But it's been months, is this really a bottle I HAVE to replace? Lets give it a second look - but memory severs me this dwarfs the 15 and 18 year bottles I have bought in hopes they'd match this one. Nose - Sweet candy, big dark caramel, and a light salt. Oh this is good. Alcohol and I get a bit of a pie filling. Taste - Salty caramel and vanilla. It's like chewing on dessert. This is just a custard pie caramel vanilla and salt bomb. A complete dessert scotch that hits on every possible note you could want. Bottled in 2013 these have become hard to get and I'm insanely annoyed with Ohio...where I'm told two stores have bottles...they just can't find them to sell them to me. Anyway this is hands down my favorite Caol Ila I've had.
