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

    • 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

    One of the best Caol Ila's in de 100 euro and below category that I've tasted so far. Much more then just smoke, a lot of sweetness and complexity. Love it !
    • Nose
      Spicy nose. Once thhe alcohol fades away there comes a wonderful aroma of sweet smoke, some oranges, vanilla and candy. The nose brings me instant to a summer bbq with marinated spare ribs freshly grilled. Totally love it.
    • Taste
      A full bodied creamy Coal Ila that brings in a lot of sweetness comes in first. Again oranges, candy and some fresh tobacco. Something earthy in there as well. This is really something more then just smoke ... summer bbq coming up again
    • Finish
      Smoke, salty seeweed and fresh tobacco again. Wonderful lingering finish that accompagnies you for the rest of the evening.

    Beautiful Caol Ila, with lots of room for sweet and fruity notes, besides the sweet (peat)smoke. Very enjoyable.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Sweet smoke and lots of fruit, citrus, even some candy-like sweetness. Apples, some tobacco.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Full body, nice balanced pepper, intense, sweet smoke, honey, some tobacco, peach.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Still some pepper, full body still, sweet smoke, honey, oranges, peach. Long finish, with lots of tobacco remaining in the mouth for long after.
