    Caol Ila or Kilchoman - there are good arguments for both. But I haven't had both distilleries in my glass often enough to give a well-founded opinion, so I don't think about it any further and try to enjoy the best of a young and stormy malt and that is the very convincing one for me, because it is not uncomplex , Nose.

      Strong smoke with dry campfire ash, vanilla with a little caramel and malt, rice pudding with cinnamon, behind the smoke there is a lot of fruit, orange oil and salty lime, white peach and melon, raisin and a hint of plum syrup, honey and white chocolate

      tingling seasoning with cinnamon and pepper, some oak wood, ash and smoke presses properly and have both light citrus tones and dry barley malt in their luggage, caramel, oily-soft structure, apricot, a bit of bitterness from soot and earth, only works half-finished

      Phenols cover the oral cavity dry and iodine, salted barley malt, sweetness reminiscent of honey, thick ash with a pinch of caramel, lingers for a long time and warms, but is nothing special and does not arouse the desire for more

    Heavy, but good
    • Nose
      Peat, ocean
    • Taste
      Peat, iodine, a bit sweet
    • Finish
      Heavy, but it is balanced really good between peat and brine

  7. Menko scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    Nice Islay cask strenght. It's all there, but still to young.
    Not very complex.
    If I had the choice, I would buy an Ardbeg 10, for the same price.

    Granitic, stony and heady peat. A trickle of smoke. Heather, iodine. Pebbles in the bed of a very clear river at the top of the mountain. A little humus. With the addition of water, an ounce of white fruit. Wax. White chocolate. After a few minutes, tire and tar, a vague medicinal touch. On the palate, it's a little young, but already velvety, grassy, vanilla, quite sweet, not at all alcoholic, salty and slightly fruity. White pepper, spices, then a very nice finish, vegetal, vanilla, bitter just enough, not too violent and quite long. Caramel and nails in retro-olfaction.
    It looks like raw cask Machir Bay, but I would say it's Caol Ila, after much hesitation.
