- Had this whisky after a whisky pairing diner and my god this blew everything away! Great Caol Ila! One I would love to have in my cupboard to drink with friends. Finish is long, complex and heavenly
- Wonderful nectar for The Nectar and one of
the best Caol Ila I had had to pleasure to taste. Thanks, Jeroen!
The nose is very clean and exceptionally
fruity. Oh, sweet! Lime, lychee, banana. Caramel candy. Honey. Oh, the peat is
there, but thanks to the long maturation, it has all but faded. Slowly but
surely some freshly cut grass, wet stones, flints and liquorice appear. But it
is not over yet. Wet wool, camphor, pine cones. It keeps developing. Take your
time with this one. After a few minutes some ashes and a slightly medicinal
quality emerges. The true nature of Caol Ila shines through. Complex and very
aromatic nose that makes me salivate.
Ka-Boom! Immediately grand on the palate.
Big peat with loads of liquorice and salt. I want to say citrus, but it is hard
to pinpoint. Limoncello, but very concentrated. Fruit tea. A little bit drying.
But it remains surprisingly fruity and I really, really like it.
The finish is sweet, smoky and wonderfully
