    Great sweet and spicy Cao Ila with nice intense smoky notes. Also drink well without water and then beautiful powerful maritime character. Recommended.

    Perfect balance on the nose, very light vanilla and peat. White fruit on the palate and excellent finish.

  7. Murxus scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Surprisingly fruity for a Caol Ila. Smoke more background, coal-type. Like it :-)

  9. fgg scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      The peat and the alcohol quickly go to the side for a fruity nose. Citrus, vanilla, pickles.
    • Taste
      Very sweet and spicy. A decent pepper surrounded by fruit. Citrus, tropical fruit. Sweetness, honey. Nice this.
    • Finish
      Medium to long. More sweet than bitter with a sharp edge. Creamy
