Whisky Reviews for Caol Ila Cl4 SMS
5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.09 points
- Lots of smoke, but also sweet, smoked marzipan. Great Islay Dram with perhaps the heaviest pepper note I've ever had. Great and extraordinary.
- + H2O: rounder, but not more interesting + H2O: the phenol comes to the fore again 06.02.2017 69
artificial phenol - too intrusive
too light body, sweet, no details, alcohol well integrated, very little fruit
long, nothing new
- 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.
Hogsheads distilled in 1999.
Clean, crisp and refreshing, with ozone and sea-spray-freshness contrasting with pungent peat smoke, leafy herbs and singed lemon zest.
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.
Long and spicy, with black pepper and medicinal peat.
