  1. Wum scored this whisky 87 points Member Senior

    Conclusion: a true all-rounder. The smoke is integrated very harmoniously and mixes perfectly with pleasant fruit notes. Slight sweetness and a hint of mint round it off very well. A great everyday whisky that makes you want more!

      wow, pleasant smoke, cherry, fruit, pastries, mint, seasoning, very tasty
    • Taste
      Campfire smoke, masculine, slightly sweet, very pleasant to drink
    • Finish
      pleasant and not pushy

    I'm usually not a fan of Caol Ila's "fart" dry distillery character. However, with the few available sherry / wine ripening, I find that it harmonizes quite well. I wonder why the distillery is no longer experimenting here.

    There are days when you just sit back, switch off your head and enjoy.
    This whisky is made for exactly such occasions. Uncomplicated, tasty and enough complexity to not get boring.

      A pleasant smokiness flows from the snifter. Malty sweet with a good portion of light fruit. Mirabelle plums, peach and pear. The typical Islay menthol note is discreetly noticeable in the background.

      Here too a sweet maltiness with a hint of Williams pear and green apples. Unfortunately, it looks a bit flat, is probably due to the alcohol strength. Yes, the barrel strengths messed me up: P
    • Finish
      84 84
      The finish is rather short.
      The barrel is noticeable with a slight tingling on the tongue.
      It gets a little dry at the back.
