Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Tasting Note

    • Nose

      Wonderfully concentrated pure, clean Caol Ila – peaty and medicinal, with rich fruit, spicy and fragrant. With water, the fragrant smokiness comes singing through.

    • Palate

      Sweetness and maltiness strike first, then are quickly overwhelmed by peat smoke and intense, clean, crisp flavours. Caol Ila’s signature smoky bonfires are here, and build to quite a size. Overall, drying, in a beautifully balanced, complex, elegant development, complemented with cinnamon spice.

    • Finish

      Long, rounded, robust and multi-layered.

    This particular distiller's edition is in my opinion, the best whisky ever made. Thanks to the Whisky Exchange for making it available. I searched 3 continents for it before finding it here.
