3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.00 points
Fruity (apples, pears), ashy, sweet, oily
Spicy, creamy, citrus, seasalt
Long, spicy, sweet
- 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!
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!).
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
Nice long finish on nutmeg and cinnamon.
