Tasting notes

  • Nose

    Stone fruits with heather honey and a waxy overtone. A subtle briny character and soft peat smoke hinting at salted caramel.
  • Palate

    Tangerines and nectarines with buttered toast and shortbread biscuit. Warm on the palate developing a charcoal smoke.
  • Finish

    Rich honey and vanilla linger while sea salt and smoke dissipate.

Cl6 Reviews

  • Highly grassy and mineral, it’s almost pulverised limestone mixed with green tea, lemon juice and coal.

    Serge Valentin

  • Less oil means more balance for this stunning Caol Ila. The major citrus element cuts through the peat; light sugar and malt salivates.
