Whisky Reviews for Caol Ila 2009 ElD

13 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.16 points

  1. Lorion scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Absolutely successful. 82 points.
    • Nose
      "Classic. That's how I imagine a modern Caol Ila at this age. A greasy and slightly stable smoke. Citrus fruits are hinted at.

      Water: An entire horse stable is now floating in space. The lemon peels become more dominant. Splendid!"
    • Taste
      "Intense and ashy. Fire, straw, lemon.

      Water: A little creamier, a little lighter, a little sweeter."
    • Finish
      Long and smoky.

    tough in taste, but in winter you can and should!

  3. holborndrinker scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    This has the DNA of the distillery in it - salty, iodine, gentle smoke. Would recommend a bottle of this.

  8. yellowcake scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      pleasantly smoky, slightly sweet, brown sugar, some citrus fruits, phenolic
    • Taste
      the smoke dominates, but it is nicely integrated and the alcohol is not dominant, somewhat spicy and sweet
    • Finish
      medium to long, still smoky, this should be the last whisky of a whisky evening

  9. Vladimir Ziryanov scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    I drank a whole bottle, at the start the whisky was squeezed and one-sided, although not bad, when there was already less than half a bottle, then I played with paints - ash, fatty baked fish, a little lemongrass, the last drams were wonderful
