Caol Ila 30 Year Old 1979

A bottle of the very limited 30 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky from the Caol Ila Distillery in Islay, Scotland at Bar & Cigar in Oslo.

 

This 50% abv whisky was distilled in November 1979 and a total of 266 bottles were filled with the 30 year old whisky in January 2010. I'm a novice concerning whisky, but I could tell it was not as smoked as some of the other Islay whiskys I've tried. It had a smooth, round taste with a good vanilla note, a light caramel sweetness, some pepper and just a hint of smoke.
