Caol Ila 12 Years

This Malt shimmers clear and whitegold. Tingly fresh aromas of sea salt transit to smoky turf of the island. Without a doubt an Island-Malt, even with the sweetness in the beginning. Pleasant, with a punch.

Nosing: Peat Smoke Sweet Floral

Taste: Peat Smoke Vanilla Sweet Spices Honey Fruit

Finish: Peat Smoke Sweet Spices Anise

Comment: Very light smokiness which is quite surprising as a very famous Islay malt and the very important component of the Johnnie Walker. The fruitiness is very remarkable and very enjoyable, which makes the whisky very mouthwatering, savoury and enjoyable. The finishing is long and it is a very well balanced dram. Much appreciated.
