Whisky Reviews for Caol Ila 2011 BD

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.26 points

    What is this? In terms of smell I do not find much of Caol Ila in it.
    Yo, the taste is completely different. There is the Caol Ila, firm, pointy, slightly sour. Hoppa.
    Nevertheless, I am mad enough to miss the complexity; he is 60% but that pomerol prints it, makes it tame. A bit fruity, but there is more to it than there will be.

    Great value for money.

      Great nose. Fresh, fruity, significantly less smoke than expected. A little metallic and a hint of the red wine barrel.

      This is where the distillery character comes to the fore. Ashes, cold smoke and behind it a pleasant musty wine barrel. I like this.
      The 60 turns do not hold back.

      Metallic, the wine barrel stays in the nose and the ash at the bottom of the tongue. In between, a rest of the fruity sweetness.
      Not bad for the young droplet,.
