Colour: A light pale gold.
Nose: This Caol Ila initially reveals a mix of smoky and maritime notes. It's like walking along the shore of the sea, accompanied by a hint of peat smoke. There are also subtle fruity notes of apples and citrus and a hint of vanilla.
Taste: On the palate, the smokiness unfolds in full, accompanied by salty sea breezes. The fruit flavours are still present, with green apples and lemon peel adding a pleasant freshness. The oak makes an appearance with a slightly spicy note.
Finish: The finish is medium long and smoky, with a lingering warmth. The peat smoke and salty notes linger for a long time before gradually subsiding to make way for a subtle sweetness.
Conclusion: The Caol Ila 8 Years 2022 by Murray McDavid is a lively Islay whisky with a balanced blend of smoke, sea breeze and fruitiness. It is a great choice for lovers of smoky whiskies with some complexity.
