Caol Ila combines sea air aromas, smoky-smoothness and a sweet start to create a pleasant, relaxed disposition with a lingering, charred dry finish.
Nose: Oily yet fruity. Linseed oil, green olive, smoked fish. Lightly medicinal, wet grass, linseed oil, smoky wood (balsa wood?). With water good biscuity malt and smoky bacon notes.
Palate: Rounded, mid-weight. Good smoky intensity mid-palate. Clean juicy fruits, oil and dry smoke.
Finish: Long smoky, warming.
