Whisky Reviews for North Islay 2008 SE

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.33 points

  1. KayMeertens scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Very nice balance. Caol Ila seems obvious for a 'North Islay', but it actually seems more like a peated Bunna to me. Caol Ila on bourbon is absolutely more 'crisp' than this.
    • Nose
      Taai-taai, a sweet and slightly spicy type of gingerbread. Even more so than peat. A subtle cranberry topping.
    • Taste
      Peaty, peppery. Again that gingerbread with berry sweetness, now covered in chocolate.
    • Finish
      Sweeter again, the peppery side is gone. Printen in chocolate.
