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.
