Appearance: Pale straw. Nose: little water raises almond oil and old fashioned oilskins; still a fresh fruitiness (lychees?), a trace of olive oil, and after a while potpourri or scented hand-soap. Palate: Smooth, pleasant mouth-feel; with water light acidity, some salt and still the sweeter notes. A complex balance of primary tastes. Body: Smooth, pleasant mouth-feel: firm with a light to medium body. Finish: Sweet smokiness in the lingering, slightly sour finish. Serve: To enjoy, simply serve the 12 Year Old Caol Ila neat in a rocks glass, adding ice or a splash of water to taste. Pairings: The tapenade brings out Caol Ila's smoke and salt notes, while the mix of capers and herbs accentuates the vegetal flavours.

Wine EnthusiastA seductive brininess and waves of oily peat-reek greet the olfactory sense. The palate entry finds a surprisingly buttery-creamy leaning along with the peat-reek; at midpalate the flavor becomes concentrated, oily, malty sweet, and only moderately peaty. Ends on a sweet malty note. Builds from stage to stage, each phase being better than the last. Best Buy.
