First tasted it on July 6th 2016. This is the best Caol Ila that I've tasted sofar. 1984 is an excellent vintage year for this distillery indeed.

Color
Jonquiripe corn
Nose

Heavy peat and a campfire, but there's much more: Baked apples with cinnamon, dark chocolate, mocha, iodine, oak, banana and citrus.

Taste

Peat, apple cake with cinnamon, nutmeg, eucalyptus, almond, honey and limestone. Water doesn't do any good to this one, so better to drink it as it comes.

Finish

Very long with peat and spices.

Comments

Blind tasting of a sample.
