  1. smaeksle did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Touch the island. The salty one I had with the Caol Ila Moch.
    • Nose
      (Blindtasting) Neat alcohol, malty, a little smoke ?, sweet, honey.
    • Taste
      Saline, and then a bit stormy, in the mouth, the smoke is then briefly.
    • Finish
      Neat spicy.

    TASTING NOTE (LMDW): Color: old gold. Nose: dense, deep. First milky with notes of cheese crust, however, it quickly takes on exotic accents (pineapple, persimmon), evolves on rose petals and heather honey, and becomes sweet and more and more floral. (lilac, lily of the valley) It should be noted that the whole is more structured than it appears at first sight. Palate: sweet, balanced. Like the nose, it emanates from it a power that you do not necessarily expect Quasi aquatic (water lily, reed), it becomes more greedy (lemon pie, meringue) Chocolate and almonds make it forking into more bitter lands, however, it remains in one block, very compact. Final: long, sweet. Fans of Jurançon and Petit Manseng will particularly appreciate its notes of honey (acacia), orange blossom and apricot. She languishes on a thick carpet of moss, rustic, with her feet on the ground. Comment: i ntemporal, this Bunnahabhain is surprising. Mischievous as hell, he always responds where he is not expected, one thing is certain, the peat is absolutely absent from the aromatic and tasty palette, his evocation is even a sacrilege, for the rest, it is enough to borrow the cross roads that are presented to us, the pleasure is at the rendezvous.
