Whisky Reviews for Caol Ila 2001 GM

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.29 points

  1. LeChiffre scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Overall, a very nice and successful ashy-smoky Malt with fine sweetness. For the price and the age I would have expected a bit more complex. So unfortunately, quite expensive for the offered.
