  1. Juergen Willi scored this whisky 88 points Member Senior

    Well balanced Caol Ila wirh a 6 months finish in Moscatel Casks. Easy to drink. Almost too easy.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Massive Smoke, furniture polish, smoked bacon, Vanilla, Oak Wood, Ash, Spices, Raisins, Honey. The nose is a little bit shy. Give it time. But not too much water. It drowns easily.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Smoke, Iodine, Salt, Herbs, Oak Wood, Citrus, Orange, Berries, Olives (!). With a drop of water less smoke but more fruits like pear and peach.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Herbs, Honey, Smoke and Tobacco

  6. Archer scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    The finish in the Moskatelfass is a nice addition to the "original" Destilleriecharakter. Multifaceted. And although it is bottled at just 43%, with nice depth and very neat finish.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Immediately warm smoke, carried by red grapes, blackberries, blueberries, plums and raisins. Some pepper and allspice, milk chocolate. If you can smell it for a long time, it opens more and more and releases more aromas. Honey and caramel, also some furniture polish in the background.
    • Taste
      86 86
      The smoke of a slowly cooling campfire. Dry from the beginning, as we know it from Caol Ila. Sweet plums, grapes, raisins. Wood is added, bringing mild herbs with it. Pine honey. Marzipanbrot. The peaty smoke note increases in intensity over time.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium-long and dry, with tart herbs, honey, plums, milk coffee flavor.

  7. Lorion scored this whisky 64 points Expert Senior

    Well, it smells nice. Then you can tilt it too. Is not bad, but that should not be a criterion when enjoying.
    • Nose
      75 75
      Rauchig, Malzig, great Honigsüße.
    • Taste
      57 57
      Watery, thin ash water. Some zinc.
    • Finish
      59 59
      Medium long, bitter-smoky.

  10. SweetPeat scored this whisky 87 points Member Senior

    I've always been keen on that, now I know why. Thick smoke, light fruitiness, tasty salty and lots of citrus fruits. Great part!
    • Nose
      87 87
      heavy wood smoke, salt, bacon, smoked fish, sweet vineyard peaches, flowery honey, caramel, sweet oak, there announces the Bourbon barrel
    • Taste
      86 86
      nice dry smoke, sweet, citrus fruits, salt, iodine, bright fruits, liquorice
    • Finish
      87 87
      very long (10/10) and delicious. I find the smoke after 10 minutes and a light sweetness resonates, could be licorice
