    Aroma: light peat, honey, a barrel, a slight sourness from apples Antonovka, the smell of ash, burnt wood, perhaps a berry such as cranberries, sea freshness.
    Taste: classic Islay, but without hospital and sleepers and rail, burnt pastries
    Aftertaste: willow branches cast into a fire, oak distinct, and ash
    Rating: 84
    Bottom line: a worthy molt, although we don’t know what is hidden there, but it looks like Bowum or Kol Ilu. On the site they say that the west coast of the island) I definitely recommend to pioneers Ayla, the barrels were really high-quality, and the price was This molt is very good!

    • Nose
      Peat, rubber, ash, tobacco. Initially, the one-dimensional peat seems to be odor. But later also coffee, some chocolate. Also slightly sweet in the background, apricot, very light vanilla.
    • Taste
      Salmiak, liquorice. Peperig. Peat. Then next to the peat and smoke some apricot again. Ash, smoke. Somewhat thinner. Later caramel clearly comes through.
    • Finish
      Liquorice, very light pepper, peat, smoke, tobacco, ashes. Rubber. Caramel. Medium aftertaste.

    Actually caol Ila. Not bad for a peated. A bit thin for 46%, but good value.
