Caol Ila 7 Year Old Reviews
Tasting notes from Billy Abbott (The Whisky Exchange)
Nose: Rich damp peat and smouldering peat smoke, over a layer of salted lemons and pine. Minty touches mingle with rough seas and rock pools.
Palate: Sweet to start, with coal dust bitterness lurking in the background. Liquorice notes build with fragrant pine. The pine then smoulders, with a grind of black pepper and a hint of tar.
Finish: Mint and barley sugar fade to menthol and burnt pine.
