Words of Whisky:

Nose: Notes of sweet, vegetal peat and pear drops with hints of mush bananas, tinned pineapple, sauerkraut and lemon zest as well. Some honeyed-glazed cereal too.
Taste: A lingering ashiness, and sooty as well, with a quick hit of spices (cracked black pepper and cloves), but also a touch of charred lemon peel, chocolate and peach.
Finish: Slightly briny and spicy. Soft yellow fruits, red apple and a prolonged smokiness.

Score: 84

A lovely, warming whisky with a relatively high complexity but lacking a bit of richness. This Caol Ila 7 Years from Càrn Mòr would quite possible have been a cracker at cask strength.
