Whisky Reviews for Caol Ila 2007 WM

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.00 points

  1. Horror_Vacui scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    10 months finish in Oloroso barrels, beautiful golden yellow color, € 100 for 14 year old Islay Malt. The marginal dates are ok for 2021

    Nose:
    Very maritime nose, algae and flotsam on the beach. Slight tar notes. Dates and figs, walnut. A little more banana in the background. With a little water, a nice vanilla scent rises from the glass.

    Mouth:
    Ashy maritime start, algae chips. Nice blend of sea water and dried fruits, berries and ash. Vanilla and dried fruits.
    With a little water and time in the mouth, add a little lime.

    Finish:
    Rather dry, medium length, subtle dried fruit.

    89-90 / 100

    Conclusion:
    A caol ila not so tangy and citrus fruity, but rather a strong maritime one. Is another side of the distillery, and a damn tasty whisky.
    Depending on the form of the day for me already 90/100 worthy, almost tempts to award half points.
