Re: "Keep the Peat Logs Burning" January Live Tasting
Wow, I love Caol Ila too, but you guys are making me wish I had even one bottle of it on hand.

Color: Light Hazelnut.
Nose: Warm nutty hints, possibly due to a bit of sherry influence. Warm hints of Leather and Apples, with a slight hint of smoke. A slight hint of peat, but no where near as sweet as the McClelland's Islay.
Taste: Strong, very subdued sweetness, with a nice robust character of apples, smoke, cinnamon and leather.
Finish Dry, with a subtle hint of smoke.
Incredibly confusing to me, as right now this reminds me of a smoked and peated Glenfiddich, than anything that is uniquely from Islay.
