Softer nose, less salty and less smoky. Instead sweeter notes of flowers, apricot and marzipan. More grass as well. Mouth: development of vanilla, peat, some smoke and a bit more salt than on the nose. Finish: coffee with liquorice and that salty touch again.

I was comparing to Caol Ila 12yo by the way.

So, from your review, the 18 yo is slightly better than the 12 (which it should be), but how is it in terms of value for money?

I do like the 18yo better, but I have to add that I'm not a fan of simple peat bombs. The 18yo has more complexity, but I guess most people will prefer the 12yo, certainly compared to its cost.
