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.

Tasting notes of Tomasz:

Nosing: Peat, citruses, nuts, wood

Taste: oily, peat which is not overpowering, sour, a bit of wood

Finish: strong sweet-sour wood. I would say one of the best finish from what I have.

Comment: This whisky has very unique profile because of sourness which is very prominent. Also you can definitelly taste the peat, but it is not actually smoky. Very oily, the taste is very strong and mouthwatering. Finish is perfect, from which I can remind a little of JW black.

Nosing: Peat SmokeSweetFloral

Taste: Peat SmokeVanillaSweetSpicesHoneyFruit

Finish: Peat SmokeSweetSpicesAnise

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.
