Very smooth for an Islay whisky in the taste. It is lightly peated and some grassy notes joins the white fruits. The finish is medium long with a little bit of everything going. The sweet vanilla peat stays the longest though.
Just a great, easy going, introduction to Caol Ila. No alcohol burn, lightly peated and sweet. I might be a bit watery if you are used to cask strength whiskies, and I wouldn’t recommend water. I will give this 84/100 (21/21/21/21).
