Very light gold, white wine like, it has a nice thick swirl line and drops a handful of slow medium thick legs. #forpeatssake
Minerals with coastal notes and a more floral peat than I remember smelling from any Caol ila I’ve tried before. Rose water and mineral water, and slightly perfumed, it’s certainly a different Caol ila for me. #forpeatssake
Mouthfeel is decent, and it’s a spice boy for me, plenty of peat, but lots of cinnamon, root ginger, hot mashed potatoes, fruit cocktail syrup, there is a coastal fee but it’s quite light. #forpeatssake
More time and it’s just becoming fruitier, red berries, a little new make like too. Late on I get dark chocolate and espresso, cigar leaves and some dunnage. #forpeatssake
Coal Ila palate is giving me chicken fried in garlic and butter and then topped off with jasmine rice. Or am I just wishing I’d ordered in earlier? #ForPeatsSake— Paul (derekcuster) (@derekcuster) January 7, 2023
Quite long length wise, plenty of peat and fruit, staying strong too, plenty of ooomph. #forpeatssake
There’s not much to say here to be honest, this is a full on Caol ila monster. Yes i really enjoyed it, and yes i’d very happily have a bottle for my whisky cupboard 🥰.
