- A very successful, young Caol Ila.
- He is, because of his youth, stormy and impulsive. But the flavors go well together and are finely woven. None really comes to the fore. A nice drop!
Strong campfire smoke rises and mixes with citrus and vanilla notes. Some iodine is wafting in the background and the smell of seagrass is blowing over while the crop is being threshed in the field next door.
Sweet vanilla that is carried by heavy smoke spreads in the mouth. It is followed by slightly salty and peppery notes that gradually turn into earthy and mineral flavors.
Cold ash and citrus aromas linger, while slightly salty notes pass quickly. Despite its "only" 7 years lies behind all a beautiful, pleasant oak flavor.
- Well made Caol Ila with a lot of strength and alcohol. Intense finish!
