Whisky Reviews for Caol Ila 1982 Kb

  1. Baanaanaabob scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Tasted at Old and Rare 2020. Quite nice combination of peat and sherry, some sulphur notes, very drinkable.

  2. PEATYBOI scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    It is not everyday that we get to try out a 30+ year old Caol Ila, especially one that is this dark in colour. Quite an interesting bottling that did intrigue my curiosity.

    On the nose, relatively clean sherry (prunes and raisins). White fruits can also be detected in the background. Slight hints of tobacco and leather as well. With water and time, loads of lightly toasted nuts and milk chocolate. Cigar humidor. Clean cognac, hints of rubber. A classy nose that resembles gentlemen clubs.

    The palate starts off quite shy when initially poured. Notes of subdued smoked ham, toffee, and caramel. With time, prunes and walnuts in the foreground. Orange, marmalade, and hints of mint on the side. Tobacco, black tea and leather are also present. This tastes pretty old school, resembling some old sherry bottlings of Glenfarclas.

    The finish is long and lingers with pu er tea and worn in chesterfield sofas. Also some dark chocolate.

    The complexity really starts to develop around 10 minutes after this was poured so do allow time for it to open up. Quite a unique bottling of Caol Ila as this is very different from what is usually associated with the distillery.
