Nose…Fresh wet grass with a touch of citrus, an Islay?????
Taste…Smooooooth, elegant and rich yet soft liquorice with notes of pear drops, what a surprise!
Finish…Medium to long, soft tingle and fruit sweetness all the way.
Nose…i think the angels have taken all the peat/smoke certainly not harsh with light fruits.
Taste…Very clean and as smooth as satin, a little seaweed and a touch of antiseptic ” what a dram”
Finish…Medium, ever so grand and elegant, is their a better way to end the day than with a large dram of this ever so special Caol Ila
Overall score 4 corks
What a corker this was can these Islay drams do no wrong, we at Whisky Boys don’t thinks so.
Glad we left this 30 Year old till the end it was by far the best dram of the night.
Well done Berry Bros.
