2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.36 points

  1. Cobo scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    A very nice, dainty Caol Ila, not too complex but what r shows is more than solid
    • Nose
      Fragrant with peat and fresh seawater, some coconut and cotton candy, very fine and elegant
    • Taste
      Fresh and sweet at the same time, kumquats, beautiful spicy peat flavors, lemon zest
    • Finish
      Long, very soft and balanced, becoming a bit mineral

  2. magic_slim scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    High end Caol Ila close to perfection and a clear recommendation for all you peat lovers out there.
    • Nose
      Warming - a classic Caol Ila nose with plenty of peat and lemons plus a little vanilla. Very fresh, clean and tasty.
    • Taste
      Warming with a taste close to perfection. Absolutely delicious on notes of peat and sweet lemon juice plus vanilla.
    • Finish
      Very long, becoming more gingery and spicy with camphor as well.
