  1. Crann feàrna scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Beautiful presentation of a Caol Ila. So different from the standard 12 yo peated version. Not better, but different. Recommended.
    • Nose
      No water: light, fresh, dry grass, strong sour peat, hesitant heather sweetness.
      With water: sweetness of summer flowers. Dry smoke in the back. Citrus hints.
    • Taste
      Neat: alcohol arrival (59,6%!) Jalapeno pepper and heather sweetness development.
      With water: sweet, sherry arrival. Light pepper and lots of citrus on the tongue. Long, soft dry smoke in the development.
    • Finish
      Medium long finish with fresh citrus and smoke.

  8. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Imposing smoke, oily. There is a zest of freshness with lemon and lime. Too discreet arrival of fruits.
      A little too nagging.
      With water, green malt, vegetal notes.
    • Taste
      Yellow fruits, lemon, marked citrus fruits. Saline. Young enough. More and more honeyed.
      With water, juicier, ripe fruit.
    • Finish
      Metallic, saline, spicy. With water ... too salty.

      Enthusiasm
      Nose 2/5 (3/5 with water)
      Mouth 3/5
      Final 3/5 (2/5 with water)

      Whisky n ° 1840

  13. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Initially filigree peat smoke, salty, citrus-toned and herbal king. Juniper, laurel. With water: dry herbal tones, subtle peat, oak, hearty malt and rainy hay.
    • Taste
      Wonderfully tofig but also floral, salty and citrus-toned. Back herbal and a subliminal sweetness.
    • Finish
      Long, sweet peat and a dry florality
