  1. GlenSikkes scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Tasting Note by G&M;

    Meat aroma's with hints of banana and fruitcake.

    The palate is sweet and spicy with fruit flavours.

    An underlying peat smoke edge lingers.

    Quite nice Caol Ila. Cask strength brings grassy, aged notes in aroma. Taste and finish are complexed and powerful.
    Not bad at all!

    Quite complex nose, with lots of peat and smoke, but also fruity. These elements also come back in the taste. Characterful whisky that is nicely balanced.
