Expert Senior aphex Note

aphex gave this whisky 88 points

Nose : Coastal and medicinal. With aeration, it turns mineral and citrusy. Hints of ashes.

Mouth : Oily, spicy, briny, peaty and slightly ashy. It evolves to sweet and lemony palate. Tasty.

Finish : Long, smoky, warming, slightly earthy.


A very good Caol Ila. A bit austere at first but developing on nice rounder and fruitier notes.

Nose

Ah, wonderful Caol Ila on the nose. The typical sea breeze is wrapped in a fatty jacket of salted cream butter, honey and cream sweets and toffee. Loads of citrus with a touch of pineapple and banana peel. Dry grass. Pretty mineraly too. Oyster sap. Vanilla. Soot. Pretty complex. Makes my mouth water.

Taste

The attack is oily and softly spiced. Sweeter than on the nose with again a lot of citrus fruits. It even shows some smoked ham. Bacon, in fact. The maritime elements become louder all the time. Hints of eucalyptus, that keeps it very fresh. The peat plays second fiddle, supportive of the whole. A bit of soot. Wonderful.

Finish

In the long, smoky and warm finish, I suddenly get a nice hint of sweetened espresso. Surprising! Complex, like I said.

Comments

I do not mind repeating myself. Caol Ila never disappoints. This is just released and available for 90 EUR. Recommended!
