Whisky Reviews for Caol Ila 1982 AD

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.71 points

  1. Lu Cifer scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Aroma:
    medicinal, Tussamag (thyme cough syrup), some peat smoke, sweetish, syrupy, slightly fruity, somewhat brash

    Taste:
    Strong onset, spicy with oak, medicine, smoke, oak-wort, tart-sweet, creamy, prickles and burns on the tongue, occupies the palate with tannins, calls for salivation

    finish:
    persistent, fine smoky, spicy with oak, sweetish tart, soft at the end, no bitterness ...

    * with a little water, the whisky opens, becomes fruity and sweet, a touch of vanilla, a little wood, balanced, sounds soft, fruity-sweetish, with a fine hint of smoke in a very long finish ... - yummy!

    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 207 bottles from cask 686
    Another splendid old Caol Ila from Port Askaig. It comes from a refill hogshead and is mid gold in colour, with a moderate bead. The nose is mellow and mineral-like, fresh and somewhat dry. First dentists mouthwash, then some lemon grass, then an old-fashioned farm dairy (whiff of cheese, with carbolic soap in the background), and also a maturation warehouse (damp wood and bung-cloths). Water raises a distinct anise note to start, modified by further wood notes, and resolving as aniseed balls on a scorched ironing board. The light medicinal note is still apparent, and a scent of smoked ham. A pleasant mouthfeel: sweet, then smoky, with light saltiness, and also some pepper or allspice, which lingers, along with toasted neeps (Swedes) in a turnip lantern.
