Whisky Reviews for Caol Ila 2011 ICC

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.80 points

  1. Glenjasper scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    I like the ICC whiskys. So far there was no rivet. But I'm not so sure about "Sister" anymore. An 8-year-old Caol Ila for € 85.00 is an announcement.

    But unfortunately this whisky does not meet the requirements. I have now tried five drams, but my opinion does not change.

    The whisky looks much younger than an 8-year-old. Very immature. More like four or five years.

    Slight smell of smoke, a bit of meadow, vanilla and light tannins.

    In terms of taste, alcohol dominates, or, to put it politely, pepper and chili flavors dominate.

    When the alcohol has evaporated, slight sweet aromas emerge, but they also fade very quickly.

    Sorry ICC, but that was nothing.

    "Sister" has to actually be rated together with "Brother". "Brother" is a very fine Caol Ila Whisky. Bourbon cask, 8 years, top craftsmanship! With Sister the difference is the finish with the Chateau Lafite cask. And here comes an incredibly great complexity into play! A fantastic whisky for a more than reasonable price.
