TASTING NOTES Caol Ila 1995/2010 James MacArthur

Nose: The ex-Sherry cask  has given different nuances: bacon, unripe red fruits and cotton candy. Lastly, notes of smoke, wood and ash are outlined.

Palate: peat and spices mix with the sugary tips of red fruits and burnt caramel. The smoky notes are repeated, bacon and a hint of chili, followed by cocoa. Briny sensations of iodine, complete the aromatic palette, along with diesel, ink and licorice.

Finish: of long persistence. Black pepper, peat, licorice and diesel are outlined. Complex.

This is a surprise, as it has a strong personality and an excellent balance. Harmony is exemplary, with an almost perfect intensity.

Rating: 89
