  1. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A young Caol Ila with port barrel maturation, but of course that could be a bit better
    • Nose
      Sour cherries, tobacco, chocolate, nutty, dry smoke, sour, lemon lies over everything, a bit impetuous, glue, briefly I have coffee beans, waffle biscuits, a feeling of youthfulness flashes through every now and then, also fleshy, chalky, yes, that should be be a Caol Ila, all in all almost not that wrong
    • Taste
      Sweet entry, voluminous, red berries, chalky, lemon, cinnamon, sweet cherry, ash, the smoke is present, the Port and Caol Ila aromas could be better interwoven, so it looks a bit fake, dark
    • Finish
      Green apple on the tip of the tongue, the smoke lasts a long time, sweetish, raspberry, very pleasant

    This one is in the category "just nose it away" for me. I can't cope with what the taste and finish offer. But if you love port and peat, you can have fun, I guess. This more or less a showcase of it. Oh and which distillery could that be? I don't know. The cask kills everything. Maybe Caol Ila, because of the lemon in the finish?

      There is in it what it says on the outside: Port cask, check; Heavily Peated, check.
      It's like a peat fire into which you pour of juice from red berries over and over again. The smoke that arises has a sweetness that is almost reminiscent of thick syrup.

      A very thick texture is the first thing I notice. Then it gets surprisingly bitter early on. The sweetness is still very intensive. Berries and peat are still recognizable, the smoke is still there. But that was more pleasant on the nose.

      It stays true to the subject. Port and peat. In the end it is a very dry affair and a little rubber also plays a role. If I force myself, I might find a lemon somewhere.

    Clearly a Caol Ila, quite young with an overlaying artificial wine note. Would be much better and cleaner without the red wine not
