Delicate, slightly scented. Hazelnuts.

Fresh peat, peppery, sharp oak, increasingly dry.

Slightly woody and overly dry.

Significantly drier than the other Caol Ilas sampled.

Oily. Wood-burning stove. Sweet fruits and dried grasses, nutty oak, chamois leather, macadamia. Quite edgy.

Sweet to start but dries. Grippy oak, pear, dry grass. Hot tarmac, peat smoke in the distance.

Long, quite hot. Peat.

The driest of the bunch.
