An absolutely straightforward, no nonsense Caol Ila. Crisp, assertive, direct and unmistakable.
Like wet, salty sand after the tide has receded, with antiseptic notes. Some smoke behind, as from an old bonfire.
Unreduced, sweet and salty with a balancing acidity, Caol Ila’s trademark smoky-antiseptic character is here.
Quite short, drying and warming with a little bitterness. Lingering smoky aftertaste.
