Caol Ila Distillery
A confusion of flavours that don't seem to have rounded in the cask
No age statement
Nose: Dry. Slightly vegetal. A hint of lime peel.
Palate: Oily. Cinnamon. Dusty.
Finish: Spicy. Aromatic. Slightly medicinal. Menthol.
Comment: A confusion of flavours that don't seem to have rounded in the cask
Nose: Fruit by the sea ... A distinct veil of smokiness subtly hovering over a full basket of fruit (melon, grapefruit, apricot) and toasted almonds.
Palate: Oily and silky. Sweet, mellow, candied quinces and orange. Dried seaweed. Drying, smoky notes.
Finish: Warm, spicy with a touch of hot pepper and curry. Caramelised almonds.
Comment: Sauternes adds fruity mellowness without obstructing the splendid sea influence. A real beauty.
