Whisky Reviews for Loch Ìle 1996 MM

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.55 points

  1. FritzeKrautman scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    He is really good! You can feel the influences of Laphroaig (phenolic) and Bowmore (campfire) as well as the pronounced floral note, which I also assign to Bowmore. The Grain still adds caramel and malt and finished is a great blend.
    • Nose
      Sure, first comes the smoke with phenolic onset and change to the campfire. Followed by peach, smoked ham, resinous Tannenngrün, malt, caramel and coffee. The alcohol cools something in the nose.
    • Taste
      sweet and then immediately turning into the phenolic smoke. It follows a surprisingly strong floral note (violets?), Toblerone, citrus fruits and some honey. The alcohol is strong but consistent in the overall picture.
    • Finish
      Very long, surprisingly sweet finish, only a little bitter with some espresso and again the floral note. The whiskey occupies the tongue extremely long.

  2. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    absolutely 'leave a while, right after pouring I thought, bah, dirty washing-up water with Gammelwäsche ... ;-) (I had expected no smoke)
    5 min later: smoke, bacon, greens - dirty nose, but no more bah, in the mouth then tip - exotic-tart-fruity with some Tomato herb, eucalyptus menthol and a beautiful Bowmore violet note - smack.
    I think he was around 70 € - check.

    young, a lot of grain, a miracle did not happen, a barrel of Madeira did not save! and where is the age indicated on the bottle? sad ...
