  1. Dre73 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Nice dram, peatsmoke and sweetness. Pretty powerful and warming, the nose a bit better than the finish, but overall a very pleasant whisky.

      Quite some alcohol, fruity and sweet peatsmoke, citrus, hay, farmy. Fake leather. Earthy notes as well.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Pretty some power, licorice, pepper. Sweet peatsmoke, honey, orange. Warming.
    • Finish
      87 87
      More smooth now, sweet smoke, peat, honey, some edge of sugar sweetness. Pretty long, ashy.

    Very beautiful and, above all, very clean Caol ila that does not kill you with peat.
    Thank you Dirk!

      Very clean, slightly peaty, some chlorine, almonds, cider, apple, limes, ash, sea breeze, beach pebbles
    • Taste

    • Finish
      long, clean, smoked salmon

    Absolutely fantastic clean Caol Ila. The nose in particular is great. The peat side is rather "easy going". But that doesn't matter. Full review: https://keinehalbendrinks.de/2020/07/20/junge-caol-ila/
