This is straight up a cask strength Caol Ila that reminds me of a mix of 8 to 12. Very nice nose with salty peat, apple, cinnamon, and dark fudge. Palate is dang good as well with a ton of smoke, salty goodness, with some peanuts on the side. A very nice dram with a long finish. Bring on more of the cask strength goodness, anytime. It might be the only thing that saves us from the NAS invasion.
