Whisky Reviews for Caol Ila 1994 GM

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 73.38 points

  1. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 65 points Expert Senior

    Very sweetly with raisins in vinegar, mushy undergrowth, lazy oranges and a hint of bitter chocolate with sea salt. The taste is very juicy, after noble rotten grapes, rainy hay, almonds and soft smoke. In the finish then blood oranges and salt.

  2. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    TASTING NOTE by G&M;

    Colour: Dark amber.

    WITHOUT WATER:

    Nose: Subtle sweet cured notes with hints of rich dark sugar and strong fruity

    red berry influences. Some subtle sea air notes linger.

    Palate: Sweet and very fruity. Influences of ground oats and some delicate ash

    are present. The sweet cured influences remain.

    WITH WATER:

    Nose: Fresh with a defined fruity nose - red berries. More delicate smoke

    emerges with a subtle sweet cured edge.

    Palate: Smooth and mouth coating. A nice hint of smoke with an ashy edge.

    Some hints of ground oats.

    Body: Medium.

    Finish: Long and warming.

    Cask Type(s): Finished in Tokaji casks.

    Whisky Style: An after dinner dram.

    This is one of the worst Whiskies I ever tried. This one is gone terribly wrong. The caol ila is nearly not recognisable. Everything is drowning in some kind of cheesy sweet aromas.
