    From the Artist Collective collection, bottled by La Maison du Whisky, this young Caol Ila is the result of a blend of six barrels.

    To the sight, it is a beautiful straw gold color, and it presents elegant luminous reflections, oscillating between yellow and white.

    This Caol Ila is a stroll by the sea. It lets us breathe a delicately saline and iodized peat, with a mineral hint. We walk on the sidewalk, before sitting down on a bench, then admiring the sea in the distance.

    By tasting it, we get closer to the waves. Feet in the sand, the wind picks up. The peat this time expresses a saline power, while intermittently distilling greener notes, which can make think of peat out of the earth, or something more herbaceous, like nettles.

    The sun is rising at the end. This whisky fades away with an astringent sensation of heat, with a smokier peat than upstream.

    This Caol Ila is the young Martin Eden. It imposes its identity (very peaty) with force, especially in the mouth, but it bears witness to a conviction that makes it an ambitious whisky.
