Whisky Reviews for Caol Ila 2010 SV

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.42 points

  1. Macallan1968 scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    The Caol Ila 2010 SV is for all Islay fans with a desire for that certain sweetness combined with smoke and dried fruit. A few drops of water are very good for the malt.

      A typical Caol ila nose - peat, smoked meat and sherry. The alcohol vapors at 59.9% rise and beautifully transport the subtle sherry notes and the pleasant smoke.
    • Taste
      91 91
      Fairly well balanced. On the tongue are subtle notes of sherry with chocolate raisins, dates, plums combined with smoke and tobacco - delicious.
    • Finish
      92 92
      The finish with notes of sherry and dark chocolate is long and smoky with some sweet elements. Price-performance ratio fits - typically Signatory Vintage. A good recommendation ...

    I just say sweet and intense Tacco Bacon!

  4. LeChiffre scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Takes getting used to, but not wrong. But for me personally, Caol Ila just fits better out of the ex-bourbon barrel, I don't have to have it as a large bottle, especially not at the price.
