    Wonderful nectar for The Nectar and one of
    the best Caol Ila I had had to pleasure to taste. Thanks, Jeroen!
    • Nose
      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.
    • Taste
      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.
    • Finish
      The finish is sweet, smoky and wonderfully
      long.
