Very dark beer with no head. Smells very good, lot’s of peat, smoke and whisky. Tast was very good. Tast like a very good whisky, coffee, chocolade and smokey (bacon). Good texture and nice barrel aging!

Like the Ardbeg White Label a beer that surpasses the term beer. This is a delicatesse and a beer that manages to surprise every sip. Fantastic blend with the Caol IIla whisky that never turns too much to one side but instead has a admirable balance. Must drink this to believe!

Dark brown, near black colour, beige head. Wonderful aroma of peated whiskey with hints of iodium, smoke and wood. Taste like aroma, very powerful, very peaty, very Coal Ila. Love it!

Cioccolato e torbatura ereditata dall’invecchiamento si sposano che è una meraviglia, davvero una meraviglia. Corpo denso e impenetrabile, aroma pungente e con note tostate, già al naso pervengono gli effluvi dionisiaci del Caol Ila, che è un po’ come il nonno premuroso delle birre barricate. Le etichette bianche sono davvero di gran classe.

bierkoning (10500) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 28, 2012
Bottle. Almost black and opague. Charcoal and peat in the aroma, pushing away all other aromas. Initial malty sweet, roasty flavor with chocolate. Charcoal and peat banging in and dominating the aftertaste. Divine brew, but sometimes you think you are licking an ashtray.

MrHangover (2662) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 14, 2012
Bottle. Very smokey aroma, full of whisky aromas. Very peaty flavors, jodiean, and alcohol. This is the best white label Thusfar
