  1. didi1893 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A wonderful mixture of smoke, tort, ash, citrus and beguiling sweetness in combination with bacon left out in butter leaves (almost) nothing to be desired and makes this tasty and tasty Caol Ila an ideal companion for sociable hours. Delicious and uncomplicated, makes you happy and appetite for the next glass ...

    • Nose
      Light amber and reddish caramel shimmer in the Premium Snifter, a variety of thick and oily "legs" stick to the glass wall. Peat smoke rises, caramel and fermented fruit combine with vanilla and hints of fried bacon to create a wonderfully harmonious nose. Sugar, white grapes and a hint of spicy wood are released from the salty and maritime sea surprise. A bonfire burns on the beach, bacon and belly are grilled, fly ash rises minimally. Sweet and fruity invites the nose for a first sip ...
    • Taste
      Sweetness flashes briefly, then smoky wood tones envelop the tongue, peat sticks to the palate while being chubby warm, while salt is deposited on the inside of the cheek and on the tongue. Sharpness tickles pleasantly on the tongue, fly ash follows burnt wood and dark fruit. Burnt sugar, bitter and slightly bitter wood, some acrid smoke on the tongue, ash and grapefruit, eucalyptus and old mint, lemon and other citrus fruits end tart and then sweet on the palate and on the tongue. Gradually a dry mouthfeel develops, tart and smoky the aftertaste announces ...
    • Finish
      Smoky wood tones stick dry and sweet on the palate, minimally a hint of sharpness tickles the tongue, caramel and sweet grapes and berries caress the tongue, plump warmth draws through the mouth, spicy wood elements and minimal smoke end with hazelnuts and raisins on the tongue. .. The voluminous aftertaste will be remembered for a long time!

  10. Glen Valley scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      Sweet. English jam. Slight smoky note, more in the background. Wet granite stone. The second time light wine notes, more smoke. No-name herbal sweets. Fresh. Chilled Chardonnay.
    • Taste
      Smoke comes through stronger, dominates. Oily, creamy mouthfeel. Long heat at the tip of the tongue - chilli hot, not young hot. Campfire. Ash. The day after New Year's Eve with the sparkling wine of the night still in your mouth. Little other flavors to get through behind the heat and smoke. Slight fruitiness from the Marsala barrel.
    • Finish
      Smoke strongest. Medium-long finish. Ash and jam. Burnt orange.
