Tasting Notes by jwise
This is another sample I received from the Master of Malt Drinks by the Dram program. (I really love DBTD!) I enjoyed the Cask Strength from Caola Ila, and I expect to enjoy this 18yr.
Nose: Smoke and sea air. Yum! Some pear in there, but it is mostly masked by the big smoke.
Palate: A little tangy on the tongue. Frankly, not good. It is a bit light in the mouth.
Finish: Medium finish, with more of that light, tangy flavor that was there on the palate.
With such promise on the nose, this turned out to be a real loser for me. I have a bit left in my glass, and I am actually contemplating pouring it out. It is perhaps "too" unique of a flavor for me. That's it, I'm pouring it out. I just don't want that taste in my mouth any more...
