Member Ratings and Notes
Nose of inviting campfire smoke and moss. Palate is that traditional campfire-y Caol Ila smoke. And there's not a lot else I can say besides that. If you've tried some typical Caol Ilas then you've had this before, which isn't to say that it's bad, because I do like it.  It's a typical, decent, smokey/peaty effort. 
Peaty sweets and a nice palate that makes this close to a B+ for me because it represents what I like most in Caol Ila....Solid peat goodness.  I agree with Adam that this is typical but it is solid in my book.
