  1. KB201 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    An uncomplicated Caol Ila with no frills.
    Translated, "Moch" means dawn.

    Nicely balanced for a youngster, gentler than what I had expected.
    Although it doesn't diverge much from the general house style, it's got a couple things of its own. As opposed to the 12, I've noticed a little bit of a sourness, fresh apple juice and grapes. Maybe a little more mown grass, particularly on the nose.
    Would be nice to see a bold 6 or 8 on the label (I'd suspect a 6), but at this point, let them do their thing, I'm not a one to complain.

      Peat motifs, gouache, lemons, sweet pastries, vanilla, custard (but not very fresh). Pollen. Alcoholism is almost not felt. 21

      The middle-aged man. Kislinka of citrus, smoke. Black pepper. Not bad, although a bit rustic. 20

      Long, smoky. The same acidity fades smoothly through the smoke and ash. 22

      Balance: 20. A good talk with Ayla, but he still lacks depth, complexity and power. Yes, and just boring.

    elaborated with great and slender stills, a dram that can be shared with a well made Camembert cut in its middle of tappenade!
    • Nose
      light peat, yellow fruits, sweet spices
    • Taste
      unctuous, smoky peat, sweet lemon, almost sweet, spices, and an "earthy" side.
    • Finish
      medium to long enough on the same aromas, with this bold, creamy side, and a return of smoke!
