Nose : a very delicate nose peat wise. Fruit , light peat with some candy and hints of Turkish delight. This needs some breathing in the glass. With time it gets fruitier with more tropical fruit and Ginger. Palate ; big alcohol hit then a blast of smoke , bacon, fruits and sugared dry smoked banana. Much Smokier than the nose suggests and exotic. Finish : smoke , kippers , malty cereal notes and dough.

Bottom line:

Ace. One of the better Caol Ila bottlings I’ve sampled recently. A real treat of a dram. Older Coal Ilas, rock!

Doesn't appear to be available through Drinks by the Dram, which is a shame.
