The Single Malts of Scotland (S.M.O.S.) is an independent bottling company that also part of a group that also produces the Elixir and Black Tot brands. This expression is from the Caol Ila distillery - produced in 2009 and aged for 10 years in ex-bourbon casks. In 2020, five casks were selected and married together for this small batch expression - a perfect dram for Islay lovers. It is presented pristinely with no added colour or chill-filtering.
Nose: Wet sheep's wool with and white peach, wet stones and fresh oyster. Some thin smoke in the background.
Palate: Much sweeter, with hints of lemon candy, more peaches and a hint of creamy pie. After this initial (youthful) sweetness it becomes more coastal again (seaweed) and sharper, with olive brine and leafy notes.
Finish: Long, with slightly acrid smoke, citrus zest and salted almond.
