Caol Ila 18 Years

Like its younger brother, this scotch is very peaty and spicy, but the long maturation has made it a lot more complex and refined.

Nosing:
Smoky bonfires, then soapy water and wet wool, with a smouldering beach bonfire in the distance. Hints of mineral oil, then wax. Develops scents of burnt pork sausages.
Taste:
Smooth and mildly sweet start with good acidity and sea salt.
Finish:
A lingering, charred, slightly sour finish.
