Lovely, soft aromas of sweet, smoked bacon, liberally coated in bbq sauce! – Seriously! With time it some white fruit emerges and the nose becomes quite herbaceous with hints of bog myrtle and medicinal peat.

Soft and loamy to begin with on the palate, again with that smoked bacon character. The sweet barley on the middle gives the palate fullness with some tarry-peat notes. Extremely juicy finish, the sugar coated barley extends with sweet liquorice and a light tarry, ashy aftertaste. A delightfully sweet and rich Caol Ila.
