Andrew's Tasting Note

Nose: soft, fruity, sikly and buttery; decadent, chalky and savoury: hints of salt and crisp but clean elegant smoke; buttery with a touch of scallops in a sweet and spicy Thai chilli sauce. 

Palate: sweet and spicy: more sweet Thai chilli sauce on scallops sauteed in butter; more clean smoke, buttery tarry-peat oils, delicate tropical fruits and chalky candies; bright orange and candied ginger.

Finish: long, coating and sweet with decadent spice, clean smoke and tarry peat. 

Comment: a beautiful and delicate Caol Ila; time has polished it beautifully; a unique older expression ow whisky much bolder in its youth; dangerously drinkable.

 

Producer's Tasting Note (Translated by Google from German)

Nose: Aromatic smoke, tobacco, with roasted nuts, iodine and a fine citrus note.

Taste: Sweet and salty, with fine smoke, vanilla, honey, cereals and bitter orange.

Finish: Still sweet, slightly ashy, with apples and floral notes.
