  1. malt_fan_06 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    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.

  8. etwa77 scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    excellent notes by malt_fan_06… very austere, very dry, lemony and slightly salty dram.. strong minerality in the nose, like you would smell a freshly cut piece of stone, also very loud smoke and ash.. the taste is very clean on bitter lemons, spicy and astoundingly creamy.. some sweet licorice in the background..
