Bourbon Tasted: Aug 2019 The nose is rather full and fruity for a Caol Ila with plenty of banana and almost tropical apricot and honey. Very lightly peated and salty with hints of gooseberry and oak. Slightly medicinal with time but I have to say it's a full and fruity one!
The palate is lighter and slightly saltier with barley, apricot and subtle peat. Quite oaky by Caol Ila standards with again an almost tropical Arran-esque fruit character. Hints of lime and gooseberry on the middle and a long, salty, smoky finish with a touch of violets and Springbank-esque oily/ fishy notes. Interesting!
