Nose: Just a hint of woodsmoke, and a touch of peat... it's smells very sweet with butterscotch overtones and surprisingly fresh apple and pear notes.
Palate: Very soft and buttery, with smooth, refined, peat. White pepper and sweet lemon.
Finish: A smoky, citric dryness.
Overall: A delicate, sophisticated Caol Ila that demonstrates there's a lot more to this distillery than peat.
