Whisky Reviews for Caol Ila 1968 RWD

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 95.51 points

  1. Dede scored this whisky 96 points Expert Senior

    Tasted blind.

    Nose: The first nose is a marvel. Fruit compote, wax, encaustic, old library, precious wood ... A malt Chesterfield. A hint of smoke too. And especially a big aromatic power. It is quickly more austere with aeration, much less fruity and gains a medicinal dimension, but also something exotic, lemon confit. The peat, elegant, makes its place. Turpentine. The impression of having passed from the banks of the Spey to the coasts of Islay. Strange ... but far from unpleasant! Second pass: same ... Palate: Powerful (we must type well in the 55%), complex and melted. A salty side, very fine peat, cough syrup, sweet citrus, a little pineapple and a nice licorice / gentian bitterness, resinous notes. Second pass: idem. Post-blind note: Coal smoke! How could I miss out in blind?

    Finish: Long, intense, marked by gentian, peaty malt, resin.

    Conclusion: A magnificent malt. An old Islay? Ardbeg ??

    Regressed in parallel with the 1968 Intertrade and the 1974 Signatory C # 5-9, I pass its rating from 94 to 96.

  2. goran scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    To quibble a little, it's a pity that the pepper is so present, it hides a little fruit but it's still very good (BT2015)
    • Nose
      peat, citrus fruits, exotic fruits, mint
    • Taste
      peppery, herbaceous, the fruits of the nose
    • Finish
      peppery and fruity
