  1. JFMalt scored this whisky 87 points Member Junior

    Elegant Caol Ila. The nose is somewhat tight, but there is lemon and fruits. After some time, a light floral shea butteriness surfaces. Smoke is restrained.

    In the mouth, it's an explosion of citrus and seafood, good amount of sweetness, with a little pepper spice.

    Finish is medium in length.

    Overall, Pretty good.
