Nose: Rich spices and hints of soft sherry. A little peppermint, notes of dried herbs, allspice and malt.
Palate: Malty, creamy palate with hints of salted caramel, allspice, Seville orange marmalade, dates and ground mixed nuts.
Finish: Long finish. Quite oily and ever-so-slightly herbal.
Overall: A very interesting Caol Ila with a big influence from the sherry cask...
