Whisky Reviews for Caol Ila 1999 MC

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.13 points

  1. megabreit scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Crunchy and snappy, as one might expect from a relatively young Caol Ila. Who stands on peat smoke monster, is served well here.
    • Nose
      fresh lime note, behind it a lot of peat smoke with a hint of vanilla
    • Taste
      sweet fruity onset, which is then swept away by a very dry and glowing smoke wave
    • Finish
      long warming and with a dust-dry smoky note, some basil is noticeable

  2. alectron scored this whisky 83 points Specialist

    If you are after a peat monster in it's purest sense, this is it.

    • Finish

      peat
      smoke, smoked peat, and more peat and smoke. Some malt sweetness.
