Not having had the time to have a good dram in weeks, I finally got the time and opportunity this week. Caol Ila. I had brunt myself with an island sounding name two weeks back – “Isle of Jura” which neither tasted like an Islay malt nor like a whisky I’d go back to. More on it later.
May be because I was having a runny nose (which my wife attributes to Swine flu) and craved medicines, or may be because it is a real good whisky, I liked it a lot.
Notes — Sea, peat, smoke and iodine. A bit watery at first, but gets drier in the end. Pretty neat.
