    This is a particularly great bottling for its age. Young Caol Ila isn’t always so memorable, but this one was particularly nice. Now I’m interested in tracking down the other three bottlings in this range…

    Nose: Earthy peat, with a fresh acidic zing. Light ash, turmeric, and a hint of smoked chili. Yellow plums, Fuzzy Peaches (the candy), melon, caramel, and some light brown sugar. Some coastal notes of fresh shellfish and rock salt.

    Palate: Medium-light but oily texture. A good nip of heat. Sweet up front, with plenty of ginger and honey. Very salty and savoury in the middle, like a good chicken broth. Some caramelized mushrooms on the development, with caramel, oak, moss, and ginger. Some tart green grapes sneak in there. Clayey and chalky on the back end.
    A dribble of water evened out the heat and emphasized the fruity notes, adding some milk chocolate to the back of the development as well as making things a bit ashier.

    Finish: Fairly long, salty and tangy. Smoked salt, grilled asparagus, tall grass, corn silks, lemon zest, dragonfruit, and ginger. A hint of sweetened condensed milk.
