Jean-Marie Putz

An amazing and incredible subtle nose, very smooth and rich. Peat is present, accompanied by beautiful chocolate notes, hints of citrus fruit and smells of ripe fruit mixed with new leather behind a light veil of smoke. A very complex nose announcing a superb whisky.
The mouth just confirms the nose. Very complex too and even subtle than the mouth was. Leather notes seem to dominate a light acidity made of discrete lemon hints. What a great whisky!
The finish is lingering and develops from memories of milk chocolate to leather touches, the whole being perfectly balanced and nuanced.
This whisky is not far from perfection. From far the best Caol Ila I ever tasted.
