Nose
Fragrant. Tobacco. Floral. Juniper. Some seaweed.
Palate
Sweet, seaweed, juniper, Guinea pepper. Drying.
Finish
Stalky. Late surge of flowery, peppery, dryness. Very Long.
Comment
An excellent example of Caol Illa, a highly distinctive malt that is gaining in recognition.

Nose
Pulsating peat, hint of lavender and mint. Some vanilla sweetens it with the malt.
Palate
Rich, oily, fat, chewy and then peaty malt that is almost perfectly sweet and clean.
Finish
Multi-layered with the peat forming the mighty base and then some supremely toasty malt notes arrive.
Comment
This is a very high quality, complex version of an underestimated malt at an optimum age. Fabulous!
