Whisky Reviews for Caol Ila 1980 Sa

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.22 points

  1. FiGee Fine Goods scored this whisky 91 points Expert Junior

    This cask no. 4934 was originally and mistakenly sent to Japan by Samaroli instead of to the Swiss Importer. Japan was very upset upon these news and had to send the bottles to Switzerland. The result is the back having both a Japanese and Swiss import label.

  2. Falnor scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Complex, right at the beginning. Seaweed, rubber and tea. Also something very peculiar: Sushi and wasabi. Then comes the fruit like lemon and some bananas. Taste this one is more standard Caol Ila. Coastal and peat. However the peat is warming and a bit like tar. The oak gives the whisky strength, but doesn't dry it out.
