Nose: Peaty, maritime, tarry, slightly dry and on vanilla. It gains in complexity over time.
Taste: Dry, peaty, on hemp rope, with some soft citric notes, tar, coal, ashes and some seaweeds. The finish is long to very long, drying, peaty, tarry to very tarry, citric, salty and maritime.
General Impression: An excellent old peaty, citric and very expressive Caol Ila.
