Color
Old gold
Nose

Nice nose, ginger cake, peat, brine, a little toffee and apple with faint hints of orange possibly.

Taste
Full on the palate, with the peat at the front but its not a crisp clean peat, but a rougher dirty peat, heavier duty mixed in with something meaty and a few plum notes.
Some fudge arrives with a creamy oranginess and then a little petrol fumes.

Finish
Good medium length,
Comments

With water, it gets much frutier and the peat smoother, I think water certainly improves it.

I am somewhat contradictory to most fellows here and I just had one sample, so cannot re-do the tasting. In my notes this was not the best Caol Ila of the 80s, although a good dram.

Weihrauch, würzige Lakritz
Früchte im Rauchfeuer…
warm und rauchig…

Color
Pale straw
Nose

Sharp, mineral, shellfish, wafts of distant citrus. Wet pebbles with water. 

Taste

Elegant ash; austere; water brings out the lemon, but it`s all in balance, and nothing predominates.  Clean, mineral, sharp and in focus.  Super tasty! 

Finish

Long, sweet roasted lemons and fading salt

Comments

Balanced, beautiful, and elegant.

92 From Ruben http://www.whiskynotes.be/2013/caol-ila/caol-ila-1982-coopers-choice-whisky-fair/ (who finds Brora-esque notes and concludes "A wonderful dram, I love it.")


91 from Serge ("This one`s really, really great"). 

So comes pretty highly recommended...
