Whisky Reviews for Caol Ila Moch

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.89 points

  1. Horror_Vacui scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    Nose: A fresh and light nose with lots of grapefruit, fresh green apple, kohlerauch and malt. The smoke has a medicinal note, a hint of iodine tincture. Behave a salty hint of sea air.

    Mouth:
    A gush of smoke in the ashes, ashen, and with lots of citrus fruit. Malty sweetness, some almonds, very subtly salty with some time in the mouth. The body is slightly oily.

    Finish:
    Medium long, rather flat, malty with a touch of oak.

    Conclusion: As a start for those who want to slowly approach Islay whisky certainly a good start, he also shows the Brennereicharakter really good on display. I would not estimate him older than 6-8 years, he is also very bright in color. The few euros more to 12 years old, but I would take in any case in the hand.

    I like the young Caol Ila (G & M Reserve, CI10 ...) so let's go!
    • Nose
      Very fresh, with light peat moss and iodine. Something very sweet covers everything.
    • Taste
      Soft, watery, it lacks alcohol, yet it is nice and well balanced.
    • Finish
      I perceive a bitterness that persists. It is beautiful to serve again the aqueous sensation remains, it's a shame.
