Tasting Notes

Nose

A measured, almost sulking peatiness breaks through some flat and uninspiring fruity, oaky tones.

Palate

Surging peat and sweet malt are given their usual oily treatment with some extra peppery spices making a change. But the middle seems a little jaded.

Finish

Some flat peatiness flies alongside the oak, too lazy to battle for supremacy.

Comment

Can't put my finger on it: it's okay, but a bit boring and passionless for a Caol Ila.
