  3. Bam scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    Nice filling characterized by smoke and various nutty / sweet aromas.
    • Nose
      Warm campfire smoke with some rubber and a salty sea breeze. Then very nutty and sweet, cashews, peanut butter, brown sugar, nougat and strong oak flavor. In the background are the fruits, red apple and blood orange.
    • Taste
      Medium onset, silky mouthfeel. Vigorous smoke also makes a start on the palate, now a little ashier. Then again sweet with brown sugar, maple syrup, nougat, and peanut butter. Apples and peach. The oak is slowly spreading.
    • Finish
      Medium length, astringent. Now it gets really dry and peppery. Espresso, dark nougat.

  4. Andytka3 scored this whisky 74 points Connoisseur

    N- Bright fruits that swims well in the seas of brines, salt water rinsed green and red apple cubes, some mezcal and soft paper ashes. Gentle with whiff of savoury shell notes. (85/19)

    P- Apparent full body wine mouthfeel, rounded with smokiness, edgy solvent and tinned fruit juice. Superficial and restricted. (85/19)

    F- Medium, smooth with echoing oakiness. Try to dig deep but seem lacking overall. (84/18)

    B/B- 84/18

    Weighted Rate- 74pt
    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

  5. Juergen Willi scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    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

  10. 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.
