Scotch, Caol Ila 12Yr Islay Single Malt
Appearance: Creamy yellow, straw
Nose: Peaty and fresh. Salty green vegetables or seaweed with a slight sweetness akin to honeydew melon. A hint of green nuts.
Palate: Beautifully smooth, and challenging to comprehend the complexity. Flavor bomb that starts and ends with peat in a dancing way. Oily and uplifting, with a texture that reaches all parts of the palate without being overbearing, which gives it a perceived lightness. Phenolic citrus and a long, smoky finish. Once again, incredible balance.
