  3. KayMeertens scored this whisky 85 points Specialist

    Blind tasting of a sample. It reminded me both of Caol Ila and od Cooley, i.e. the fruity sweetness (especially in the nose) makes it seem like an Irishman.
    • Nose
      Very sweet initially: wine gums, lime, pear, peach, apple and vanilla. Then caramel, milk chocolate and eventually a good portion of peat. It takes a while for the peat to kick in though.
    • Taste
      Pear, milk chocolate, peat, peach, raspberry and vanilla.
    • Finish
      Milk chocolate, caramel and peat. The fruitiness which is so prominent at first doesn't stick.

  4. Erik Elixer scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    N: smoke, oily, even fruity, rum, chocolate and briny
    T: salty, smoke and briny - oysters
    F: meaty and bitter fruits

  6. granella2003 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Full peated Saint & Peat Caol Ila 2004, A aromas of dried fruit and
    raisins. The full peat and smoke there is room for many tones of apricot wood.
    This year the Saint & Peat year 2004 with an alcohol content of 46%. the fine
    of this whisky is matured in sherry casks, which give him something soft and sweet.
