Caol Ila 15 Year Old Reviews
Tasting Notes by Rocky
Nose: A very waxy nose, almost like builders putty, with plastic and chocolate turning into bitter lemon and cucumber.
Palate: Very oily in texture, juxtaposed against the fairly light flavour profile with the cucumber note continuing from the nose along with the bitter lemon, turning into smoke on the back palate.
Finish: Medium in length with hints of cucumber delicately combined with ash and hints of peat.
Comment: An intriguing dram, with the rich texture (you would think) and the lighter flavour profile being at opposite ends of the spectrum, but somehow managing to balance each other perfectly.
