Color
Yellow gold
Nose

Fruits jaunes et cire au premier nez. Cendres de BBQ. Vraiment fumé et fermier/terreux ensuite. Voire salé - oui, salé. Maggi. Un peu de paille.

Taste

Belle attaque sur les fruits puis ici aussi la fumée prend le dessus. Encore des notes fermières. Un peu d'épices (gingembre). Fruits jaunes discrets. Belle épaisseur, belle vivacité.

Finish

Longue sur la fumée et les épices, des cendres.

Comments

Un whisky plutôt austère mais on sent les fruits là-derrière, en embuscade. Peut-être qu'après quelques semaines d'ouverture ... ?

Mais il est déjà très intéressant dès qu'on fait sauter le bouchon.

Goûté blind.

Nose: lots of delicious fruits: green apples, banana`s, melons, pears and some red fruits. Citrus! Then there`s some smoothy peat and smoke, as well as some nice pepperish smell, some cinnamon, honey and last but not least: my favorite vanilla!  

Palate: Fruits! And citrus! Lots of them, see above.

Finish: rather long, with a lingering taste of all the fruits, especially the caramel, the peat, the oak and the pepper!!!

Nose

En entrée la tourbe fumée typique de Caol Ila, mais d'une grande douceur et d'une grande subtilité. Du beurre fondu, des zestes d'orange, du pain grillé, des champignons noirs. Que c'est complexe ! J'adore ce genre de profil.

Taste

De la douceur suivie de poivre blanc. De la tourbe fumée tapisse les joues. Du tabac humide, un peu de soufre. Ici aussi, une complexité comme je les aime: des choses qui arrivent, repartent, se croisent, reviennent. Un grand moment gustatif.

Finish

Du charbon, de la terre et des cendres envahissent la gorge. Des picotements traversent la langue. Pas mal de saveurs reviennent en bouche.

Comments

La complexité et le profil de ce Caol Ila me rappellent le 1990 The Whiskyman for Massen, mais avec des couches supplémentaires et encore plus de subtilité. Un TRES grand Caol Ila !

Gin clear
Nose

First of: lots of leather & leather/shoe polish with a slightly chemical touch, peat, mineral/stone-dust, cinnamon, citrus, fish flakes, some dark bread, some old wood as well as some autumn leaves, all quite savoury despite the cinnamon but very pleasant and promises an intersting development. (90)
Later: turning a tad sweeter, oat cakes, some cinnamon, an artificial/ester-y orange note, and for some reason I'm occasionally thinking of roasted chestnuts, a tad metallic. (87)

Taste

peat, somewhat plant-y peat at that, some straw but not farmy, canned fruits, faint dirty motor oil. (86)

Finish

nice oilyness, more peat, mineral, Zwieback, some citrus notes again. (88)

Comments
Remember - whisky scores and impressions are highly subjective and situational by nature - so don't go and buy whisky according to someone else's taste...

Nose

Wow! Plenty of citrus aroma and green tea at first nosing. Warming, fresh, peaty, grassy .... a lovely nose for sure.

Taste

Slurp, Lecker, Mnjammnjammnjam! Very well balanced and clean, dominated by citrus fruits and a creamy peatyness at first mouthfeel. Ripe sweet lemons, pink grapefruit, pears and fudge contribute to a fantastic palate. Caol Ila can hardly taste any better.

Finish

Long, reminding of peaty caramel with some white pepper coming up.

Comments

Fantastic Caol Ila - recommended. Thank you Whiskybase Shop for the sample.
