Whisky reviews for Caol Ila 2013 TWEx

2 users have left 2 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 88.11 points.

  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Excellent whisky, but it feels like there are dozens of these young Caol Ila being released every month.
    • Nose
      Plenty of brine, seaweed and wood smoke with a hint of charcoal, but also notes of fermented mash, roasted cereals and grilled pineapple. Warming and comforting.
    • Taste
      Somewhat leafy with touches of herbal peat, ash, soot and drying wood smoke, but also sauerkraut, some bitter fruits and citrus juices.
    • Finish
      A pinch of salt, preserved lemons and olive brine. Long.

    Nose: Smoky, peaty, and deep on the nose, with a touch of wood resin, thick caramel candy notes on top of the pepper, ripe oranges, licorice, and seaspray, with sweet ashes and a hint of pine needles and tobacco.

    Palate: More of the piney notes going on with ample notes of tobacco, tar, ash, and foresty notes. A hint of smoky porter, orange bitters, and darkly roasted espresso, with a sweet touch of cough syrup. Bitter, smoky, and deep.

    Finish: Long and smoky with the peat embers going a long way, ash, soot, and more of the ripe orange notes, black tea as well.

    Conclusion: A highly enjoyable and A CI in any aspect, everything you come to expect in such a young, smoky dram, with enough complexity.
