  1. nallacam scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A young Caol Ila, not too untamed. A very classic profile.

      He shows me directly why I like this distillery so much in the glass. Cold ash smoke paired with a pleasant, subtle sweetness. Lemon and salt are also not long in coming. Everything very easy, the 43% also no longer allow.
      Riesling, lime, minerality, green waste, freshly cut vanilla pod, biscuits, darjeeling, a little car tire, white pepper.

      Quite an intense start. A herbal note, again lemon and a clear saltiness. Seaweed and algae, cough drops, peat, cold fireplace, very harmonious and somewhat reserved.

      Medium length, dry, very dry, ash remains on the tongue, at the very end there is a bit of a barrel.

    Unfortunately there was always a soapy note in the mouth and finish when tasting. I really like the nose
