Caol Ila Moch

Flash Review

These are the short tasting notes from the Caol Ila Moch. September 2014 at Caol Ila Distillery. A lightly peated Caol Ila designed to appeal to a wider audience. 

Nose: fresh notes of peat smoke,  aromas of hot tar, a good squash of zesty lemon,  and notes of hay.

Mouth: peat, buttery texture, apple wood smoke and grind pepper.

Finish: medium long finish, briny mouth feel with hints of tar and smoldering smoke.

Score: 85
   < 75: undrinkable, avoid at all costs
75-79: acceptable, give it a try but don't spend to much money on it
80-84: average, enjoyable whiskies mostly easy sippable entry-level single malt 
85-89: above average drams, often well aged expressions, open your wallet
90-94: excellence, sorry kids no x-mas presents this year, daddy needs this bottle
95-99: divinity, call your bank manager for another mortgage on your house
