A fourth release of whisky from Cl in the Elements range, a big and punchy display from this underrated distillery. Clean, crisp and very assertive at full strength with a big peaty punch, but mellows and gets very briney with water. This was awarded 92.5pts in Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2015.Tasting Notes (1)

Tasting Notes by Tim F
Very clean malty aromas with faint notes of brine, chlorine and burnt lemon, then a strong whiff of burning turf. Develops big linimenty medicine cabinet notes, with faint herby leafiness (fennel). Picks up some bandage and icing sugar aormas with water.
Huge frontal attack at full strength, massive kick of smoke and pepper. When the palate has acclimatised it's the turf smoke and strong grapefruit and lemon citrus that stick out. Sweeter and much saltier with water.
Very long and peppery, with bandagey notes lingering.
An epic dram. Very drinkable even at full strength - if you take small sips! Larger doses require water.

CI2 and especially CI3 were better than this one. Heavy on the phenols, light or lacking on anything else. Water is a must. Good for when you have a cough or a sore throat but no match for the previous bottles in the series.
