    Explosive unit. Lots of flavours in nose and taste. A great combination of spices, wood, red fruits and a thick smoky taste. Not for the faint hearted.

    I got a pair of these from Cadenhead's and this is the last of the
    first bottle. It's pretty rare to see Caol Ila in a sherry cask and one
    of this quality is rare indeed. I wish I had bought more. Yum Yum.
    • Nose
      Like a christmas cake doused in Cointreau, dusted with peat and set on fire. Simply wonderful
    • Taste
      Plenty of peat, like chewing a small chunk, then the marmalade coats it
      with sweet orange and lemon before it bursts into flame once again.
    • Finish
      The maritime character emerges here, with dried sea salt and shell-fish and it goes on and on.

  6. Lafroy scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      It starts with a lot of citrus notes, smoke, ashes and matches. Strong notes of peat, burning branches, asphalt and old oak.
    • Taste
      Very intensive, dominated by sweetness, spiciness, pepper and peat, chili, asphalt and dryness. Some hints of oil and varnish. Additionally some notes of citrus notes.
    • Finish
      Very long, dominated by pepper, Tabasco, hot spices and pet smoke.
