Nose: A very interesting, spicy and rather herbal nose for a Caol Ila. Hints of aniseed, taragon, maybe even turmeric, alongside seaweed, buttery toffee, citrus, manuka honey and smoke on sea air.
Palate: Stem ginger, toffee, salinity and sweet smoke. Old ropes, salty butter, freshly cut hay and pepper.
Finish: Good length with notes of malt, toffee apple, spices and a little mustard powder!
