Whisky Reviews for Caol Ila 1979 McC

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.22 points

  1. Kensay scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Spicy and peppery at the start, smoothly calms down and overgrown with dried fruits, cigar tobacco and dill from cucumber pickle.
    In the body and finish, one-piece and consistent whisky. Fruits, spices, explosive and spicy, at the finish resembles a good speyside

  2. coldsun scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Starts with burst of strong spices and takes some time for opening. Then comes deep and bold notes of peaty smoke, caramelized fruits, jam, sweet barley malt wrapped with delicate notes of sweet spices, tobacco ash and acetone.

  3. mmaclean did not rate this whisky Connoisseur
