Whisky reviews for Caol Ila 2011 CDuS

3 users have left 3 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 88.04 points.

  1. LeChiffre scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    For me a beautiful Caol Ila as I like him so much. Powerful without being biting in the mouth. The oily, voluminous mouthfeel is a dream. It offers the typical Caol Ila facets, all of which are wonderfully harmonious but powerfully balanced - so what more could you want?

  3. Gusto scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    The oral cavity fills with a silky oiliness. The start is a little restrained, the typical characteristics of Caol Ila appear, young and fresh, not unlike a fruit brandy, this lemony, finely smoky one. Then the flavors come to the fore. Eternal finish with that silky-oily mouthfeel. Fresh. It'll be there in minutes.
