Fable Caol Ila 12 Year Old Tasting Notes
Nose: Distinctive and trademark smoke notes on the nose. Evocative of a sea port at low tide. Charcoal-like beach barbecue. The smell of an extinguished wood hearth in the morning
Palate: The rich woody smoke carries on to the palate. Earthy, rugged and reminiscent of the harbour-side. A beach barbecue of flavours, with some delicious lemon juice poured over grilled sardines.
Finish: Surprisingly gentle and ordered, with fading oily smoke and burned and orange pith.
