    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 285 bottles from cask no. 301266
    From a refill Spanish oak, ex-Sherry hogshead, with a surprisingly good bead for a relatively young whisky, this is the colour of aged Semillon.Definitely Caol Ila: footbaths and carbolic soap, coal tar, smoked cheddar, spearmint and industrial cleaner; then the sweet notes arrive with Garibaldi biscuits, and extra icing sugar. Smokey bacon is also in evidence.
    On the palate, the smokey bacon is now coated in chocolate, with coal ash, cocoa, seaside fire embers, and a decent kick of chilli pepper. The maritime notes increase, becoming almost edible with Nori seaweed.
    Bags of sweet smoke in the long finish, with dark chocolate and cherries and plenty of bonfires. Powerful stuff!
