    What a cool stuff! Here is the combination of intense port wine flavors and clear Caol Ila smoke wonderfully successful. The whisky has both a mouthwash Portwein influence as well as great wood notes and an unmistakable Islay character. Everything fits in my eyes.
    • Nose
      The port wine shows up as expected not only in the color. The first nose is determined by wonderfully aromatic berry notes (sweetened gooseberries, cherries, currants, raspberries). In addition, pleasant musty-mineral smoky notes, dry cereal notes and sweet wood flavors like in a Scottish barrel store. Over time, the aromas become a little softer, with hints of crème brûlée, sweet mulled sweets and warm pastries, which are still very harmoniously enveloped by the musty smoky notes.
    • Taste
      Here, the Caol Ila character comes through its salty-mineral smoke to wonderful effect and harmonizes with the sweet berries and the Glühweinbonbons from the Nosing. These charred wood flavors spread in the mouth.
    • Finish
      Now the charred wood notes dominate and the memory of a damp barrel warehouse with its berry-sweet-smelling wood aromas is again very present. In the end, pleasant cereal notes, some pepper, mineral slate notes and dry woody notes linger long in the mouth.

    the port cask delivers a nice variety of dark berries both on the nose and on the palate. really like a bowl of dark berries, sweet and fruity. on the palate there is quite a lot of Caol Ila, salty sea breeze, peaty, hints of bacon - what a mix. the finish is nice and long, it just seems the port influence fades a bit quicker than the peat. Just a stunning nice dram of peated single malt!
