Cl7 - Elements of Islay (Caol Ila) Reviews

Opens up with ice

Straight, this whisky is overwhelmingly and overridingly peaty, smoky and filled with formaldehyde.
Once you add a small amount of ice (I added just two cubes) there's a surprising level of depth.
On the nose, the smell is the same.
However, the palate has become textured - there seems to be two levels; one oily and one thin, that spreads to furthest corners of your mouth.
The taste constantly changes. The initial taste will simply be smoke, peat and the finish has a strong citrus flavour, particularly lime. More dilution and the smoke becomes a particular flavour that I believe to be beechwood. More, and subtle smoked beef, medium rare steak, and salted crisp.
Absolutely delicious.
