Caol Ila 2006 10 Years Old Whisky-Fassle

Caol Ila 2006 10 Years Old (Whisky-Fässle)

Young Caol Ila seems to be all the rage right now. Or is it because older stuff is hard to get for (small) independen bottlers? Anyway, we’ve seen quite a few of these hit the market recently, of which this Caol Ila 2006 10 Years Old from Whisky-Fässle is an example.

Caol Ila 2006 10 Years Old (53,6%, Whisky-Fässle, 2017)

Nose: Vegetal peat, very earthy. Underripe banana and olive oil. And plenty of citrus. Lemon juice, lime.
Taste: More peat and bonfire smoke now, with vegetal undertones. Big hit of chili pepper. Cactus sap too. Some chalk and a touch of banana.
Finish: Peat, mostly. Some herbs. Medium to long.

Rating: 85

Good but not great. Or better yet: good but not really good. I’d be happy if someone pours me a dram though.
