Whisky Reviews for Caol Ila 1991 SV

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.00 points

  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    On the nose, smoke, then scented sweetness, very floral! Freshness Later, something more vanilla and malty, some discreet notes of white chocolate and almonds. On the palate, slightly ashy smoke that contrasts with a very strong sweetness without being overwhelming. Sweet spices. Superb malty texture. Average final in length. One of the sweetest Caol Ila I've ever tasted! It made me think of the Distiller's Edition finished in Moscatel barrel. Forget the weird refinements, some hogsheads do very well the job alone!

    Enthusiasm 4/5

  2. wisekycourse scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    a caol ila "forgotten"!
    on the nose, we smell peat and then fruits some time later
    in the mouth, the orange fruits, and the spices arrive quickly to the palate, then the peat returns to fragment, decompose these flavors, quite slowly and sparingly
    the finish is rather long with this feeling of earthy peat that supports macerated fruits
    a bottle that I had "forgotten", but which even opened for years keeps all its qualities.
