    A very reserved nose dampens my expectations. The taste of the Caol Ila convinced me fully. Again, he is very cautious at first, but develops more power and power from moment to moment. The finish is rather short or medium length. Over time, this Premier Barrel becomes a true Islay whisky. Very fine and delicious!
    • Nose
      A fine, very restrained peat note rises in the nose. A subtle touch of sea air blows from the glass. Intimately interwoven flavors can hardly be distinguished. Fine peat, a pinch of salt, a maritime breeze, subtle malty sweetness and a hint of fruit. A very slight smoky note is above the restrained nose.
    • Taste
      The first sip is initially very clear and fresh. Then an intense peat aroma discharges, fine spicy wood comes to the fore, a gust of smoke pushes through the peat. Now followed by peppery pungency and a wave of salt water. Suddenly, a very pleasant, full-bodied nut aroma is created. Subtle tartness and a touch of oak finish the taste.
    • Finish
      With peppery notes and a pleasant sharpness, the finish begins. Tart, slightly bitter woody flavors mingle with a hint of smoke. After a relatively short time, the pungency and woody flavors will fade. A wonderfully intense walnut aroma is created, immature walnut shells and matured walnuts alternate. Soon, this subtle aroma comes to an end, leaving a hint of nut, smoke and tart oak tones.
