Whisky Reviews for Caol Ila 2007 AD

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.16 points

  1. beefislife scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Quite heavy and aggressive for Caol Ila, lots of ashes typical for Laphroaig. Letting it rest changes the aromas a lot.
    • Nose
      acidic sherry, white grapes, cooked beetroots, ash, wet hay, in the back typical for CI fresh bread
    • Taste
      slightly sour, ash, nail polish, hidden strawberries
    • Finish
      not very long, bitter, ash, leather, acidic sherry again, nail polish

    ????: gold, falling into a light orange,
    ? iodine, very subtle sweet milk chocolate, however, the power dominates all the time, which cannot be shown more.
    ????: sweet, oily, slightly pinching, peppery, all in smooth cool peat, chocolate, here already intensely chocolate and very smooth, stays in the mouth for quite a long time, a big plus for smoothness and slightly smoky chocolate
    ????: sweet, slightly biting palate, sweet and smoky, not so short
    *
    Nice, delicate, slightly chocolate smooth peat although with a claw of power and peppery, a little sharpness in the nose covers too much something that might still show up, a lot of sherry and chocolate. Such a bitch "very fine" and a bit light profession by the nose, why did not show us more. If the nose were more open it would be Wow. This is another bottle that will quickly disappear glass after glass ???? What can you do to have such a tasty koala in your shoulder ????

    dried plums in the nose, lots of sweets and smoked smoke, bananas, citrus, old wood. soaked sulfur in the old cellar.
    multi-layer flavor, salty caramel, bitter, sweet, sour
    peppery finish, good sherry, ash, smoked

  5. bartekfm scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Caol Ila dominated by the active barrel. Qualitative oloroso, dark, focal, ash and dry extends quite mild for this island the taste of typical Caol Ili towards the highly sherried Lagavulin (16) / Bowmore (15 Darkest), giving focal, ash, ash and climates. Interesting selection, very different from the typical distillery profile.
