  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Dry malt. Orange peel, furtively. Metallic and mineral notes that combine with a peat that settles, all is rather fine and lemony at first, but it settles with the opening.
      A little water gives citrus fruit at the front, as well as toffee.
    • Taste
      Lime, ash juice. A bit more sour than most Caol Ila I've tasted.
      With water, more supple and vanilla.
    • Finish
      Very long, but quite classic.
      With water, the oak combines with the smoke.

      Enthusiasm 3/5
