Caol Ila 13yo (2001/2014) Connaisseurs Choice
Nose: notes of citrus, adhesive, bandages and cleaning alcohol. Underlying a layer of soot and soft medicinal peat
Mouth: a light and refreshing body with soft notes of citrus on the palate, some rough grind black pepper, a whiff of peat smoke and a notch of pine wood to finish it off.
Finish: Long and satisfying notes of pine rasin with a drying mouth feel
|This evening’s winner, I don’t have bias for peat. But this Caol Ila is beautiful in its simplicity.|
