    The fabulous Gordon & Macphail Caol Ila Cask Strength is always one of their best offerings. Contract purchased and filled into their own barrels (in this case 1st fill bourbon), the Caol Ila doesn't lose any of its character being aged in the G&M Warehouses in Elgin. Not far from the ocean by any means, but not quite as rugged as the coast of Islay, this fabulous little whisky only needs about a decade to reach a stupendous level of depth and complexity. This is briny oysters, intense lemon, iodine, salted nuts and old leather. I enjoy this one straight out of the bottle, but its intensity does lend itself to a hefty dollop of water. An absolute gem as always.
