Whisky Reviews for Caol Ila 2000 MBl

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 80.50 points

  1. Grid did not rate this whisky Member Junior

    Excellent whisky, I'd say a typical Caol Ila. Very "compact" taste, which means it can be difficult to distinguish taste components, a round experience. I can recommend it.
    • Nose
      Intense tropical-fruit chewing gum. A bit of mango. 
    • Taste
      Sweet malt and a little bit of smoke.
    • Finish
      Definitly a lot of peat and a bit of smoke.

  2. markjedi1 scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    This is a very typical Caol Ila. That means it is very
    good.
    • Nose
      The waxy nose immediately transports me to a bonfire
      on the beach with struck matches, oyster juice, peat and a touch of tar and
      seaweeds. A spoonful of cod oil precedes a small amount of citrus and vanilla.
      But the coastar character dominates.
    • Taste
      Once past the lips, I am treated to a spicy dram with
      quite a lot of ashes. Feels somewhat course on the palate. Salty and oily.
      Nothing much remains of the fruit. Vanilla is hiding in the background, but
      leaves the salt to take the lead.
    • Finish
      The medium finish is warm and smoky, dying in brine.
