Taste: Despite the scarcely 57% Vol. The alcohol is hardly present and wonderfully integrated. The citrus notes on the tongue are somewhat in the background and make room for a strong sweetness in conjunction with maritime smoke. Typical Caol Ila. At the second sip I think of light grapes, nutmeg and fine vanilla. The peat smoke is still omnipresent. The Young of Malts brings with it mineral notes, which I like very much.
Finish: The medium-long finish makes the grapefruit noticeable again. Add white pepper, smoke and a little vanilla sugar.
Conclusion: The second bottling of the "The War of the Peat" series is a typical representative of Islay. The pleasant game between fruity acid, sweetness and smoke like me again and again. I was surprised by the softness of the malts, despite the high alcohol content. Of course, this malt is not a complexity bomb, but you get or better you got here for his money a malt that pleases. Nice selection!
