Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Nutty oak and subtle (coal-like, in fact) peat. Slightly meaty pine nuts with caraway, cereal and yellow fruit.

Palate: A drop of water helps open this fruity, toasty whisky with tangy peaty complementing the fruit.

Finish: Tasty toasted cornflakes and aromatic spices.

Islay #1 - Batch 1 (That Boutique-y Whisky Company) Reviews

Delicious Islay

Absolutely delicious bottling that's got more in common with one of the 10yo cask strength Laphroaigs, than any Caol Ila I've tasted, but who knows..?!

On the nose its sweet, with buttery caramel, vanilla, some tar, big waves of delicious Islay peat smoke, a very light medicinal note, and some seaweed. Palate starts sweet, then unravels big, savoury, meaty flavours, charred/caramelised fruit, more peat and tar, some bitterness, fruit and spice to finish.

I was lucky enough to find it in the flash sale - shame the bottle is so small at the price.

Stupid price, a rather good Islay.

Yes - Caol ila - massively overpriced for 50cl of NAS - although in fairness it is cask strength & unadulterated. To my mind the only other Islay it could possibly be (by nose and taste) would be Ardbeg, except this bottle is more restrained with the peat & thankfully no TCP. A very balanced whisky - burning tar smoke, sweet gorse, ginger, yes there is some seaweed, a long rounded pungent finish. Can handle quite a lot of water. Points knocked off for the stupid price & the pungency kind of overwhelms any complexity.

Caol Ila

I get it. Very funny. Fortunately it's an absolutely delicious dram. No idea how old it is, but it's very nicely coloured. Lovely whisky.
