P: That sweetness leads the way along with plenty of peat (without the sootiness I don't favor in a lot of Caol Ila's). A tad hot. F: Great. Plenty of sugars to quickly cool things down, smokiness builds at the end. Nothing too unusual going on here but everything is in just the right proportions.
This entirely hits the spot for a peated treat. Nose is inivitingly smoky and bright, oily, some vegetal notes, hints of decay. Grapefruit as it opens up. Palate is nicely sweet, with semi-citrusy stuff balanced against big peppery coal smoke. Lots of vanilla. Oak says hello but stays controlled. Finish is very lengthy, a mouthful of smoke and coal. Super tasty!
