On the nose, smoke, then scented sweetness, very floral! Freshness Later, something more vanilla and malty, some discreet notes of white chocolate and almonds. On the palate, slightly ashy smoke that contrasts with a very strong sweetness without being overwhelming. Sweet spices. Superb malty texture. Average final in length. One of the sweetest Caol Ila I've ever tasted! It made me think of the Distiller's Edition finished in Moscatel barrel. Forget the weird refinements, some hogsheads do very well the job alone!
