    Typical Caol Ila, young and impetuous
    • Nose
      Lemons and rotten eggs, fresh menthol and cow dung, wet wool sweater, medium-thick smoke with a little phenolic iodine, damp ash, with the addition of water more sweetness emerges and it becomes rounder
    • Taste
      Charcoal grilled on the freshly mown meadow, iodine ointment, salt, some meaty hints
    • Finish
      Long and phenolic, peppery

    Tasting Notes (Whisky shop Dufftown)Nose
    WSD - An
    initial citrus blast gives way to icing sugar sweetness wrapped in
    freshly laundered wool blankets followed by menthol notes which develop
    into Iodine.  A hospital laundry?  The sweetness becomes smoked toffee
    and tarred ropes.  Water summons up the Islay smoke.
    Taste
    WSD - Classic
    Caol Ila sweetness with biscuit and toffee.  Hot smoke from the fire
    comes billowing through and some smoked chillies add depth.  Water calms
    this beast somewhat and gives depth.  It is feisty but not young on the
    palate.
    Finish
    WSD - The hot spicy smoke will not let go and you don’t want it to as it comes through with layers of flapjacks.  This is a dram to get any day started with a bang.
