    An Islay Standard Malt - well done - not cheap!
    Unfortunately colored and cool filtered!
    • Nose
      phenolic, aromatic smoke, full sweetness, citrus fruits (lime, pear);
    • Taste
      a soft, full, sweet onset, dry smoke, citrus fruit, vanilla, spice (pepper); oily, velvety and tasty;
    • Finish
      rather long, spicy finish, spicy notes;

    • Nose
      Juniper. Garden mint. Burnt grass, but soft.
    • Taste
      Lightly oily. Soothing at first. Lots of flavour development.
    • Finish
      Spicy (nutmeg, pepper). Warming. Very long.

  6. wisekycourse scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    do not forget that 12 years of caol ila has also "democratize" the SM as lagavulin!
    it is easy to access, but indestructible for many people ... who do not drink whisky yet, a good entry in the field! one of the sweetest in peat, with a return of fruit, caramel, milk, sweetness!
