First released in 2010, this whisky is chosen by songwriter Douglas Maclean (and named after his song “Caledonia”). Matured exclusively in ex-Oloroso sherry casks. Nonchillfiltered, naturally coloured and bottled at 46%.
Nose: Sweet, creamy and honeyed, with notes of Manuka honey, hints of dried fig and date, soft sherry and a hint of oak.
Palate: Rich, with nutty toffee, lots of raisins, dates, honeyed fruit, polished leather and a hint of tobacco.
Finish: Good resinous grip on the finish to balance the sweetness. Spicy, dry and sprinkled with a dusting of cocoa.
