    Clean sherry cask, heavy body spirits, very balanced and integrated. An interesting example of how great old Caol Ila was.
    • Nose
      Very salty and dark, rich sherry influence from a top-tier clean sherry cask, but maybe a refill cask. Fresh grapes and red fruits, I could suggest strawberry jam and ripe apple. Then you can find a heavy peat backbone, gunpowders, a touch of herb medicine.
    • Taste
      Extremely sweet and minty, sherry still plays its roles, very leathery and floral. Some pencil peel and herbs. It is very spicy due to high alcohol contents, but overall it is very clean and juicy. Then it becomes ultimately minty.
      With water: It just becomes perfection! Tons of seaweeds and dried fruits, fermented beancurd, dynamic!
    • Finish
      Long bitter finish, fresh, leathery and minty.
