  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Sweet on the nose, maritime notes, peat (not too strong) leather, a bit herbaceous, citrus peel. Strong on the palate, peaty, smoky, prominent tart notes on the wood, licorice.
    On the finish very tart, smoke, peat, liquorice. Interesting, great whisky.

  2. malt_fan_06 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    A great Caol Ila. Harmony and complexity are outstanding. No water needed, drinks better without it.
    • Nose
      Elegant, maritime, fresh, well integrated smoke. Leather, spices, vanilla, some lemon and apple. Ash. Gauze. Complex and deep.
    • Taste
      Creamy, oily, salty, vanilla, oak, smoked fish. Tight. Smoke and iodine. Power, but served in a velvet glove.
    • Finish
      Round, velvety, vanilla phenolic smoke, again iodine, really nice long. Zero bitterness, zero disturbing wood.
