    For information: The whisky is my first own bottling and costs 119 € - 114 € go to me and 5 € go to a Paypal Moneypool in favor of the hospice association in Pfaffenwinkel

    Blind tasting 02/13/2021 - First impression Caol Ila
    • Nose
      86 86
      Sweet, ash smoke, fresh wood, mentholic (alcohol stings), becomes herbaceous over time, liquorice root, liquorice, like cough syrup. Smoke subsides a little. Slightly brine
    • Taste
      83 83
      Dry, spicy, slightly fruity (Haribo wine gum), alcohol does not work completely
    • Finish
      82 82
      Relatively short, the smoke is no longer as present as in the nose, a bit bitter astringent

    Good bottling for lovers of smoky port maturations. I personally think a few drops of water are good for him. And you can also give the whisky a little time to develop.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Fruitiness, but clearly alcohol. Red fruits, dried fruits and smoke. With a few drops of water, the alcohol will no longer be as pungent.
    • Taste
      88 88
      A bit alcoholic biting without water. Lots of dark fruit, the smoke rather reserved, maybe a bit medicinal. Dried fruits.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium to long with a slight bitterness. Fruitiness remains.

    Nice oily sweetness at the beginning which then fades into smoke. Fills the mouth nicely.
