Whisky Reviews for Caol Ila 1990 WN

11 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.23 points

  1. Dirk scored this whisky 90 points Super Administrator

    Nice, balanced, peaty but not to much, great cask influence and juicy liquid. Quite some stewed fruits, some additional typical Caol Ila flavours and all so balanced. Nice one!

  2. Baanaanaabob scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Briny peaty and citrus fruits another brilliant selection from the whiskynerds

  3. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Very drinkable, very balanced. Almost as if a Caol Ila was blended with another malt. Peaty, creamy, with a good mouthfeel. Very slight flavors of white fruits like pear and white peach. I would love this to be a bit bigger and have more complexity to garner more than 90 points. Still, this is very respectable.

    First a bit shy on the nose but then really starting off on the palate and in the finish - very good
