Tasting Notes

Nose

A complex and almost feral quality. Starts buttery with a little raisin then comes the perfumed smoke then dunnage, warm bracken, nuts, digestive biscuit, light oak.

Palate

Smoke develops fully here:paprika-coated nuts, wood embers, incense. Explodes in the middle of the tongue bringing out a lightly medicinal quality, then cedar.

Finish

Complex and long.

Comment

A fascinating, exotic, Caol Ila and all the better for being relatively young.
