  8. KayMeertens scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Compared to the 2007 edition (ID 7640) this one is more peaty, less malty and less fruity. 87/88.
    • Nose
      Lime, earthy peat, dark chocolate, toffee, salt, pastry, malt, straw and a little red fruit like cranberry. Water adds apple.
    • Taste
      Sweet lime, peat, dark chocolate, salt, gingerbread, toffee and almond.
    • Finish
      Peat, dark chocolate, gingerbread, salt and lime.

    Interesting change with some drops of water. The nose changes to strawberries and smoke, the tast is a good 70% bittersweet chocolate with some salt and small notes of citrus fruits. The finish is still warm and long lasting and very balanced. Here definitely adding water improves the malt.
    • Nose
      Strong, but balanced. Mostly lemon and peat with a bit cherry and salt.
    • Taste
      Very strong and warm, with salt, pepper and dark chocolate (> 90%). Later grapefruit, a bit bitter, and smoke.
    • Finish
      Warm and long lasting, somehow like a good cigar.

    "A superb, lemony, salty, coal-tar-soapy bonanza, Caol Ila Cask Strength

    is a whisky capable of bringing joy to the most jaded peathead. We love

    this."
