  1. helmutgw scored this whisky 69 points Expert Senior

    + H2O: rounder, but not more interesting + H2O: the phenol comes to the fore again 06.02.2017 69
    • Nose
      artificial phenol - too intrusive
    • Taste
      too light body, sweet, no details, alcohol well integrated, very little fruit
    • Finish
      long, nothing new

  2. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Notes by producer;

    Often overlooked due to its size, this distillery is increasingly becoming a favourite of peat fans thanks to whiskies like Cl4. Created from a small batch of hogsheads from a single vintage, it’s an assertive dram that shows both the distillery’s coastal character and the complexity of age.

    Cask details;
    Hogsheads distilled in 1999.

    Tasting Notes;

    Nose
    Clean, crisp and refreshing, with ozone and sea-spray-freshness contrasting with pungent peat smoke, leafy herbs and singed lemon zest.

    Palate
    This is a big whisky, with an intense hit of smoke and pepper to start. As you unpick the palate, it reveals more complexity and softens, with grapefruit and lemon zest mixing with earthy peat smoke and gentle brininess.

    Finish
    Long and spicy, with black pepper and medicinal peat.

  4. granella2003 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Fine malty Malt Whisky Caol Ila with soft aromas of malt,

    Citrus and Turf Smoke.A special Malt with 58.7% alcohol

    and violent peat and smoke flavors. A sweet hint that prevails to

    a while and makes him linger.

    The

    aftertaste of pear and salty make it complete. A Whisky foradvanced drinkers with

    particularly heavy peat and smoke elements insights.
