  3. markjedi1 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    I have said it many times before and I will gladly say
    it again. Caol Ila (almost) never disappoints. Around 60 EUR. Thank you, Jan!
    • Nose
      Lovely greasy nose with typical ashes and soot, but
      also quite a bit of sweet fruit. Sultanas, apple and oranges. Olive oil. Almost
      rotting wood (which is a plus!).
    • Taste
      Sturdy attack with quite some spices. Almost creamy.
      Butterscotch candy and citrus fruit go hand in hand with ashes and seaweeds.
      Nice salty edge. Goes back and forth between sweet and salty. Great balance. No
      water needed.
    • Finish
      Nice long finish on nutmeg and cinnamon.
