Jonquiripe corn
Nose

Le nez est sur le citron, très présent, la tourbe évidemment, le sel,  et le bacon grillé.

Taste

En bouche (sans eau) on trouve du poivre, du sel, du citron.

Puis avec un peu d'eau, le côté carné est un peu plus présent loin derrière le citron.

Finish

La finale est longue entre tourbe et citron.

Caol Ila 2001/2015 (58.8%, Malt Barn, sherry, 192 bottles) Four stars and a half Colour: straw. Nose: more oak influence, as expected, but it’s still pretty distillate-driven. The combination creates notes of amaretti, and other almondy things, while there’s a whole fruit salad in the background, with even papayas. Some herbal teas, and rather less peat smoke than in the younger siblings. With water: a superb leafy smoke, with a complexity that wasn’t to be seen in the others. It hints at pre-reopening Caol Ila, so very early 1970s. Really. Mouth (neat): very punchy, more citrusy, more minty, and more kind-of-terpenic. Strong peppermint liqueur, more amaretti, and even a few drops of maraschino. Did all that come from the sherry cask? It’s very intriguing. With water: extremely good. It loves water. Liquorice wood. Finish: long, extremely well defined, and yet rather wide. Almonds, saps, smoke, citrus, menthol… Comments: smashing. I almost went for 90. Well done Malt Barn! SGP:556 - 89 points.

Nose

Very much a Caol Ila. Salty, mineral peat. Bonfire ash. Citric acid. Slight hint of musty old books (refill sherry?). Earthy green herbs, fennel, thyme, sage. Treated thatch roofing. 

Taste

Sharp salt and mineral peat. Lemon bitters. Quite a creamy mouthfeel. Some porridge notes. Citrus oil. Sandalwood. Some caramel candies. 

Finish

Long. Peat. Ash. Oil smoke. Lemon rind. Brown sugar. 

Comments

This was had a lot of the standard Caol Ila profile, but had a lot more kick and complexity to it on account of being cask strength and without chill filtration.
