Nose frank and dry, not denying its maritime and peaty origins but remaining a bit indefinite as long as it does not open the mouth. She does have an accent but has been able to assimilate her refining into sherry casks, a little discreet on the nose but more present in the mouth. Superbly voluptuous displaying a little animal and fruity side, leading to the final maritime and phenolic flavors.
Nose of burnt rubber and bacon. Also a nice vanilla to marry everything. On the palate, vanilla, peat and smoke ... All is still very invigorating. Reminds Pierre-Luc of a mushroom risotto? In any case, a small ton of salt. As Émilie says, it looks like a fire! In the final, the salt stretches for our greatest pleasure. A superb whiskey, very well balanced, a pity that the bottle is already empty.
Better than the sum of its parts, it is not a good Coal Ila: it is an excellent Islay, point to the line. Beautiful olfactory Islay ca! Appetizing the beautiful balance between peat and salt, anchored in a hint of maritime land. In the mouth, obliging alcohol, after the salt the heat settles and does not leave before the throat. However, on this floor, it is the powerful peat of Ardbeg that turns into a beautiful suite concluding by flowing gently in the seaweed. For a young 13 years, shows a beautiful maturity and variety.
