What a change… The previous tasting was at 30° C (Kavalan Sherry Solist) and today it is in freezing temperatures. Fortunately whisky is good in all climates and there is always a good opportunity to try it.
During a recent visit to Islay I bought at the distillery Caol Ila Distillers Edition. My version was distilled in 2002 and bottled in 2014 with a 43% ABV. It was additionally matured in Moscatel casks.

N: yet in a bottle sweet with tones of peat, the same thing is after pouring into a glass, but with a greater degree of freshness and mineral notes, peat intensifies, it reveals with elements of the wet earth, warmed asphalt, bandages and traces of smoke, after a while I get more sweet with vanilla and honey, in the background there are the fruits: orange, peach and apricot, at times I sense smtg like cooked vegetables, grilled oysters, and finally a breath of sea air;

T: a little sparkles on the tongue, but it immediately becomes clear that we are dealing with peated whisky, while all the time it is also pretty sweet, I have honey, raisins, peach, also in syrup and apricot, occasionally it develops ash and a touch of salt;

F: long with a predominance of honey and ash elements.

Score: 85.

Caol Ila Distillers Editon is a very good single malt. In fact, everything is here just right, of course we could always expect a higher level of ABV, but there is nothing to linger too much.
