    Nice dram, balanced peat, smoke, fruit- and sweetness. Nose is the best part but overall very pleasant.

  6. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Much more subtle then it’s 2007 Port Hh bother from CWCL
    • Nose
      Sweet and peaty. Much more tropical fruit like pineapple and passionfruit. Also peatsmoke and charcoal. It’s rather simple and onesided but nevertheless good in what it does.
    • Taste
      It a little restless on the palate. It gives creamcheese, white pepper and charred oak on the palate. Alcohol is not so well integrated in my opinion.
    • Finish
      Fruity oaky and medium length. It remains gentle and stable.

      Not very exciting. A rather standard caol ila expression in my opinion.
