    N: Creamy, smokey, vanilla-sweet melon/citrus fruits.
    T: A coal~coke/burning log-phenolic bitter-sweet number I find dirty if not utterly filthy.
    F: Neither succulent nor dry, it soon concludes over burnt charred [deep-fried] vanilla ice cream.
    C: If you’re going for vanilla, let it be in this vein. Yet another tick for Chorlton, yet another tick for independent bottlers coming up with the goods time and time again.

    From the release email (price £76.50):

    So, on the nose: camphor, wood smoke, green apple sweets, oysters and smoked mussels, plus a light waft of something medicinal. The longer it breathes the sweeter and fruitier it gets, with smoky cherries and red fruits, plus a bit of cough syrup.

    The palate has a combo of ashy smoke and sweet fruitiness that's quite lipsmacking (if this was a SMWS release I'd call it "Tutti-frutti Bonfire"). The development is long, with tarry smoke, coastal salt and olives alongside the fruit. Adding water makes everything feel a bit more "classical" Caol Ila: clean, coastal (crab and seaweed), slightly herbal, lemony.
