Whisky Reviews for Caol Ila 1984 TWA

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.72 points

  1. Mannix65 scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    a grandiose old Caol Ila, which once again shows what potential the drops of the still produce in mature age - a great Lutschwhisky for the wing chair
    • Nose
      Very nice combination of smoked meat and honey sweetness - glazed crusted roast? - menthol and mint, ripe avocado, a grilled Granny Smith apple that has fallen into the ashes, with time some iodine
    • Taste
      creamy, very full-bodied, and again the complex combination of smoke and sweetness, herbal candies -
      with 2 drops of water he becomes even herbal and floral - great
    • Finish
      smoky and sweet - the grandiose interplay of tastes lasts a very long time

  4. Calmar scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

      The qualitative age-old mole, deep and rich, pleasant bourbon aroma, smoke-smoked and peaty notes characteristic for younger representatives of the distillery are the background, the barrel rolls, but everything is harmonious enough and cohesive.
    • Nose
      Calm, cool, vanilla, freshly processed wood, thinner, carpentry, cucumber pickle, salted grape leaves, salt pepper, oak.
    • Taste
      Oily, enveloping, pepper-lemon wave, caramel, berry notes, lemonade, mineral water with orange juice, something incongruous smoke-peat in the background.
    • Finish
      Cakes of lemon and orange, red grapefruit, fondant, burnt sugar, young bark, soft spicy oak, very little peat and smoked.
