Reseña y cata

Probado 23/09/2015

Apariencia

Clear, pale-mid golden amber.

Aroma

Meaty, almost mezcal-like smokiness. Mineraly pavement (sidewalk) after rain. More peaty with water but this knocks back the smokiness. Faint cardamom spice and fresh coriander.

Gusto

Dried fruit and fading embers with faint smokiness. Water amplifies fruit and vanilla with meaty underlying smoky peat.

Regusto

Fresh and fruity finish.

General

Described as being “unpeated”, the grain may have been peat free but perhaps due to the water this Caol Ila has a delicate smoky peat character. One of my favourite ever Caol Ila bottlings. Fantastic value for money.
