  1. Archer scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    I would never have blindly typed on 62.5%. It's so unbelievably soft, it's really hard to believe. Very, very tasty old Caol Ila.
    • Nose
      Cold peat smoke, spicy ham, warm tar, salty sea air, dried seaweed, plus roasted orange peel, tangerine water, popcorn and bread dough. Extremely "classic" nose, very inviting, definitely makes you want more.
    • Taste
      Soft and warm start, hardly dry. The peat smoke note can only be discerned from afar, since a lot has degraded over the years. Blood oranges, tangerines, marzipan bread, pepper, sea salt, paprika and dried seaweed. And it's so incredibly soft...
    • Finish
      Long, long, long. Creamy and tangerine fruity, only very slightly smoky, no dryness to be found.

  2. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    There is a lot of musty wood at the start. He smells clearly aged. The smoke looks set. In the mouth there is also a lot of wood and more sedate peat aromas. Prints in the musty nose. Purchase candidate. And amazingly gentle for the alcohol content.

  3. SRB scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    N: Well, that's not a bourbon barrel, is it? Sweet, exotic, dates, dark grapes, umeshu, warm summer rain, dried black tea, light smoke, embers, dates wrapped in bacon
    89

    M: Very sweet, pickled pear, malt, rock candy, a few drops of water ... liquorice, ripe pear, honeydew melon, light smoke throughout
    90

    Q: Long and warm, smoke in the distance, Darjeeling tea

  14. SilentStill scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Slightly disappointing CI, which hardly has anything left after gentle notes in the nose on the palate.
    • Nose
      A Caol Ila, which does not straighten itself in the nose, but rather with soft citrus notes holds in the background and only once lured and then wants to be discovered. Then he turns out to be rather weak and just slightly smoky, sweet .... but (unfortunately) everything is pretty decent.
    • Taste
      Very strong, already slightly alcoholic. In addition to the now more prominent emerging smoke but unfortunately also little bidding.
    • Finish
      Long but also increasingly alcoholic.
