Tasting Notes CAOL ILA 2011/2017 WILSON&MORGAN – BARREL SELECTION

Nose: a fine peat note, citrus and slightly vegetal. Notes of white pepper mixed with lemon and cedar are followed by chemical sensations, not too evident, of paint and rubber.

Palate: the first impression is sweet. Spices arrive after a few moments, especially white pepper. The citrus side is more evident, particularly cedar, followed by yellow melon and apricot. The intensity is not particularly pronounced.

Finish: medium intensity and persistence. Spices meet licorice and peat. Not very broad.

This Caol Ila 2011/2017 Wilson&Morgan – Barrel Selection is rather tame and it doesn’t exceed in complexity and enjoyment. A product that can be considered as a daily drink, because of the low intensity. However, it does not completely satisfy the palate.
