Whisky Reviews for Caol Ila 2011 ElD

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.20 points

  1. MaltyMillionaire scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Very nice young Caol Ila.
    • Nose
      Fresh, ashy, saline, mild honey, lemon. A previous review called it 'crystalline', which I think is accurate.
    • Taste
      Mildly sweet and ashy arrival. Oak spice, mild honey, ash, drying, vegetal notes, saline, pepper.
    • Finish
      Long, peppery, bright, ashy, and vegetal, with a honey undercurrent.

  2. Collegiate scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    This Ci for me is very dry, ashy, vegetal peat with some dash of lemon. Punchy and vibrant.

    After adding water, I feel like the nose has even more of an edge to it!

    With water - more sweetness and even more vegetal business on the finish

    Falls into a similar camp as Lagavulin 12, in it being very sharp and crystalline.
