    One of the best caol Ila under 80 € ever tried
    In addition to the peat there is a mentholated and pure licorice soul along with coal-like mineral notes and fantastic barrel sediments.

    Really awesome !!

    • Nose
      92 92
      Very fruity at first, banana, mango, melon, green apple all in your face, then the bbq smoke drifts in with hints of spices: cloves, green kardamon, warming yet fresh, a truly remarkable and delicious nose
    • Taste
      90 90
      Sweet n sour, developing saltiness, a truly mouth-filling experience which makes me ponder.. What bang for your buck is this!!
    • Finish
      92 92
      Extremely long tingling sensations that almost last 30 seconds, makes you beg for more when it finally wears off.. reluctantly

  11. Stanzeflasche scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Perfect balance on the nose, very light vanilla and fairly strong peat, iodized, but not overpowering. We're on the beach at low tide. Our steps sink into the wet sand. Salty fragrances, seashells, marine worms. Kelp, silt, algae. White fruits on the palate, grapes, plums, plums, and some exotic fruits. Peat becomes astringent. Excellent finish, long and controlled, not too strong, slightly pastry, on icing sugar and meringue.

  13. Murxus scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Surprisingly fruity for a Caol Ila. Smoke more background, coal-type. Like it :-)

  15. fgg scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      The peat and the alcohol quickly go to the side for a fruity nose. Citrus, vanilla, pickles.
    • Taste
      Very sweet and spicy. A decent pepper surrounded by fruit. Citrus, tropical fruit. Sweetness, honey. Nice this.
    • Finish
      Medium to long. More sweet than bitter with a sharp edge. Creamy

    One of the best Caol Ila's in de 100 euro and below category that I've tasted so far. Much more then just smoke, a lot of sweetness and complexity. Love it !
    • Nose
      Spicy nose. Once thhe alcohol fades away there comes a wonderful aroma of sweet smoke, some oranges, vanilla and candy. The nose brings me instant to a summer bbq with marinated spare ribs freshly grilled. Totally love it.
    • Taste
      A full bodied creamy Coal Ila that brings in a lot of sweetness comes in first. Again oranges, candy and some fresh tobacco. Something earthy in there as well. This is really something more then just smoke ... summer bbq coming up again
    • Finish
      Smoke, salty seeweed and fresh tobacco again. Wonderful lingering finish that accompagnies you for the rest of the evening.

  18. Dre73 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Beautiful Caol Ila, with lots of room for sweet and fruity notes, besides the sweet (peat)smoke. Very enjoyable.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Sweet smoke and lots of fruit, citrus, even some candy-like sweetness. Apples, some tobacco.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Full body, nice balanced pepper, intense, sweet smoke, honey, some tobacco, peach.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Still some pepper, full body still, sweet smoke, honey, oranges, peach. Long finish, with lots of tobacco remaining in the mouth for long after.
