    Blindtasting (3 Caol Ila, one port Ellen as blank)

    Nose: solid nose, reminds me spontaneously of the Caol Ila from the 2018 Special Release. Cinnamon, nutmeg, almonds, more red apples, pineapple, algae chips, furniture polish

    Mouth:
    Very gentle on approach, noticeably oak spicy, vanilla crisps, ashes, apples and a little clove. A fresh warm apple pie with cinnamon.

    Finish:
    Medium long, slightly bitter with sweet hints

      Incredibly smooth! Peaty, sea salt and old wood. There's a certain nuttiness to it as well as nutmeg.

      Initially a slow peat, but once you let it work through your mouth it develops a decent kick. There's woody bitterness, grass, almond and light pepper.
    • Finish
      91 91
      Long finish, with a great sweetness, toffee and cream pie. Addition of salt and chocolate. Eventually dry and rubbery.
