(Islay) Caol Ila 12 year old Malt Whisky  70cl

Caol Ila Malt Whisky (Gaelic for 'the Sound of Islay') is considered to be one of the lighter of the Islays. Pale in colour with a greenish tinge. Nose: Oily yet fruity. Linseed oil, green olive, smoked fish. Lightly medicinal, wet grass, 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, spicy (nutmeg, pepper). Warming. Very long. Comment: All the classic Caol Ila aromas and flavours are there, with no sharp edges. Medium weight, this is a refined, powerful dram. A balanced, peaty beauty.
