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:

Tomasz
11. Mar 2019
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.
