    Do you work in an office with someone who loves Ardbeg, Talisker or Lagavulin? If you get them in the Secret Santa this Christmas, then gift wrap a bottle of Caol Ila 12. I promise you they’ll love it. It has a lovely array of scents that I could enjoy for ages: pineapple; ocean spray; seaweed; heather; damp, vegetal mountain peat smoke; light rubber (like balloons). I agree with @Generously_Paul that “the palate is a little less complex than the nose, but no less enjoyable”. A light airy salty sweetness. Grapefruit, orange, and salt initially with a mid-palate smoky char and black pepper that clings to the roof of the mouth. The sweetness holds to the finish. They. Will. Love It! Oh yeah, by the way - if you have Norman from Sales, don’t get him anything. He’s a total berk. I’ve never once seen him unload the dishwasher. Oh, and remember that smell in the bathroom on Monday? That was him.
