  1. peatbogger scored this whisky 86 points Specialist

    Caol Ila sherry cask, always interesting.
    Not as potent as the recent Signatory single casks, but a very nice sherried Islay.
    • Nose
      84 84
      The young age makes the maritime Islay peat more prominent than the influence from the 3 sherry butts.
      Still some dark and sweet fruit present.
      Salty, cured meat.
    • Taste
      86 86
      A little thin on arrival but spice and peat kicks in quite quickly and saves the impression.
      Sweet dark fruit with a pinch of salt.
    • Finish
      87 87
      A little fruit, a little peat, a little sweet...
      Balanced and harmonious finish lasting pretty long with a slow and stable fade.

    • Nose
      85 85
      Nose is reminiscent of Caol Ila 12. Peppery, sweet smoke, citrus, red apples,
    • Taste
      87 87
      Very pleasant meeting between whisky and tongue. Quite fruity behind the curtain of sweet, thick smoke. Quite nice.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Pepper, apricots Medium-long and fruity

  6. Dre73 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Nice whisky, nice combination of sweet smoke and sweetness with some chocolate. Pleasant dram.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Sweet smoke, some peat, pretty some alcohol punch. Then grassy, hay. And pretty some saltiness.
    • Taste
      85 85
      At first some sal ammoniac kick, licorice, sweet smoke. Some clear chocolate, honey, salty, pretty full body.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Salty, pretty strong now, sweet smoke again, chocolate, a bit ashy, pretty long.
