Of all the (peated) scotch whiskies I've ever tasted, this is the one I've enjoyed the best (... So far).
This Caol Ila has a very well defined character, and plenty of aromas. Smoke and peat are well balanced by a fruity sweetness.
Nose : citruses, vanilla, spices, light smoke Palate : oil, wood, smoke, well integrated and very rewarding. Malt sweetness Finish : long, sweet, more smoke.
It's a wolf's smoke in a gentle sheep's clothing. And what a wolf.
