SMWS Advent Day 9
18th July 2006, refill bourbon, 327 bottles
Nose - Sweet, sweet peat, permanent markers and something else from the office - perhaps tippex? Glue? Not sure. Cold, just crushed malted barley, damp wool and women's perfume. Actually that perfume is a really defining characteristic. Lovely, you can't beat young Caol Ila.
Body - Off-sweet in the delivery, dusty and a little burnt, numbing like pear drops - your ill-advised 8 pear drop in a row. Fruitier and peatier with water.
Finish - Medium short with black pepper charred steak, and lots of gunpowder at the end. Robustly peated.
This is a big old dirty refill bourbon and young caol ila, they are reliable and excellent.
