Tasted it next to the Ardmore of the small batch serie. Loved that one, but this is a whole other level! It's true that you can't go wrong with old Caol Ila, but with prices this high you sure want to know if it's worth it.
The nose, bingo! Fruit, sweet old fruit that is warming and balance out the smoke and alcohol. If you just want peat, buy something young. Oranges, vanilla, chocolate, peach, spices, campfire on the beach. You can easily drift away on this one.
Bought it for my brother in law and we will open this bottle in feb. 2014 when my son will be born.
