The Perfect Dram series – 50.6%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Dark straw
Nose: Smoke from a coal fire, hints of struck matches, vanilla, hints of lemon zest, ginger and pepper.
Palate: Strong peat, lemon zest, plain sugar, candied ginger, nutmeg and bleck pepper.
Finish: Long, smoky and quite spicy.
Overall: There is a minimal whiff of sulphur on the nose but I am sure this is from the peating process. The whisky is quite edgy and not as complex and rounded as other Caol Ilas of this age.
Rating: 83/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
