  1. edhunter15 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    This Caol Ila is contrasted by dry-smoky wood and mineral notes and sweet honey and fruit aromas, which complement each other wonderfully and harmonize with each other. At the age of 8 he is still a bit rough and lacks depth and volume, but as a young and wild Islay malt he still cuts a fine figure.
    • Nose
      On the one hand, the first nose shows pleasantly sweet aromas of rapeseed honey, elderberry syrup and light fruits (physalis, limes, gooseberries). On the other hand, tart aromas of dry wood, salty popcorn and slightly bitter coffee roast aromas also characterize the smell. Behind it emerges a relatively unobtrusive smoke, which, together with salty-maritime notes, is reminiscent of a hot burning campfire on which flame salmon cooks.
    • Taste
      First, the sweet honey and elderberry syrup flavors spread here, mouth-watering, closely followed by dry and now also slightly vanilla wood notes. The smoke can be recognized by a lot of ash and strong roasted aromas but also by earthy and mineral notes.
    • Finish
      First of all, the sweetness is also very present in the finish and shows itself through a lot of forest honey, quince jam and pleasant citrus fruits. Finally, the mineral notes and the dry and charred wood remain in the mouth for a relatively long time.
