Whisky Reviews for Caol Ila 2010 MMcK

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 81.73 points

  1. Andytka3 scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    Dominant Note:- Another one that filled with nuance of new make, albeit a good new make it is that appeared young and vibrant with rising coconut and toddy. Stiff liquorice candy and burnt grass to pleased some peaty nose, but missing the characteristic CI's terrific scents of coastal and sea shells.

    N-18 / P-19 / F-19 / B-19

    Approximate Rate- 75pt

    Especially in the body some development and versatile. Not a very remarkable Caol Ila, but a nice dram anyway.
    • Nose
      82 82
      Initially lots of peat and smoke, ash. Some rubber and fake leather. Afterwards other things come through, like tobacco, citrus, and some grassy notes, hay. Apples.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Some pepper, spicy, lots of licorice and a bit of sal ammoniac. Later on fruity as well, some apples, caramel, pretty full body, some strawberry. Then some butter as well.
    • Finish
      82 82
      A bit pickering in the throat, some peat and smoke remain, also some sweet and fruity notes. Tobacco. Middle long, Later on some strawberry.
