Caol Ila 26 yo (1984/2011), DT Rare Auld, 55,9 %

From cask 6279 comes 173 bottles. This is bottle number 94. Sweet vanilla and gentle peat pampers your nose. Give it some minutes and it opens up.

The taste is very powerful at first, but turns into light tasty peat. Sweet honey and burned oak in the finish. Some water (I ended up with plenty) really works for this whisky!

The balance is fine, and I just keep finding new things in this whisky. After giving it some time you will find new things and if you add water you will find something else. I will rate this 91/100 (22/23/23/23).
