Tasting Notes
Oliver KlimekColour: Gold - Nose: Dead fireplace, vanilla, lemon zest, hints of smoked ham, ginger and pepper. - Palate: Peat, mixed citrus fruit, mango, vanilla, liquorice, candied ginger, pepper. - Finish: Very long, fruity and smoky. - Overall: Unusually fruity and rather sweet for a Caol Ila, but it works perfectly well.
