  5. LeChiffre scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Very nice classic Islay malt from the Caol Ila distillery. Offers everything I expect from it.
    • Nose
      sea air; salty; Seaweed; mussel shells; citrus notes; plus sweet vanilla notes as a nice counterpoint, campfire smoke
      - very maritime on the nose and fresh citrus notes, classic Caol Ila
    • Taste
      oily mouthfeel, also very maritime in the mouth; Seaweed; mussel shells; fresh citrus notes; some oak; noticeable pepper; smoky
    • Finish
      peppery-spicy; citrus; mineral; a bit of salt; delicate oak; smoke (slightly ashy and a hint of iodine)

    Reserved nose, but then very good, typical Bourbon cask Caol Ila. Delicious.
