- A beautifully made, stringy whisky. Everything fits from front to back. No failures in the nose, in the mouth or in the finish. Just good throughout. One can simply rely on the 12-year-old Caol Ila.
Clear but not intrusive smoke. Somewhere between campfire and peat smoke. After a while, fresh citrus flavors in the background.
Soft and creamy on the tongue. Very spicy and a bit maritime (so towards the sea breeze). Behind it, fresh citrus notes. And yes - very pleasant, strong peat smoke.
Medium to long, pleasant smoke on the tongue and citrus on the palate.
