Caol Ila’s Feris Ile 2012 bottling, this is a big bruiser of a whisky, finished in second-fill sherry casks.
Nose: Smoked venison and red current jelly, new trainers.
Palate: Rich, full and meaty; hot cross buns and butterscotch, huge sherbet lemon taste.
Finish: Citrus sweet with caramel undertones.
Overall: A big whisky that’s light on the peat but still packs plenty of punch.
