Aroma: quiet gentle - seaweed, salt and ashes. Burnt wood, leather, lemon, pepper and hint of rosemary. With time typical maritime style opens up at it's best. With water lemon and peat notes are more present.
Palate: bit dry, full of smoke, ashes, burnt caramel, pepper, salt and seaweed. Much more heavier and smokier than the aroma. Needs water really. With water - nice typical mix of lemon and pepper. Fresh and easy going then. Finish: lemon drops with pinch of salt.
Comment: another great clean Caol Ila.

The ratings system that we use is based on personal opinion and reflects only a personal momentary impression about the tasted whiskey. We do not represent any producers of whiskey and we are not in the whiskey business ourselves. However, we have our personal sympathies for particular whiskeys. We are human, therefore the ratings that we give are subjective. Furthermore, they are given with comparisons to other whiskeys in mind. We decided to use convienent and widely used 100 points system.
