nose: smoke,peat,lemon zest, tar, medicinal notes. The whole 9 yards… Islay big time. this is what i love! smoked bacon, wet leaves after the first rain. very very appetizing nose. some malty notes after some time are released , excellent!

palate: Thick, oily viscous body. smoke, warm smoke. the entire mouth is warm and delicious. peat paradiso, with some spice on the end. again, the bacon is here, smoked delicious bacony taste. yumm. pepper. pepper! this is Islay’s finest times. a true winning palate.

finish: Loooooooong smoky sweet finish ending on sweet peat and tar. delightful!

@galg if you could choose just one Caol Ila would you go for this is the Cask Strength?
