    This is good!
    • Nose
      Sturdy smoke,obvious barbeque meat, lemonpeel and lemon, smoky toffee a bit of burned electric lamp, a chalky dryness underneasth, maple syrup. Fresh coriander and lemon balm.
    • Taste
      Plastery and chalky, dryish beginning. Sweetens, honey, nicely round and
      filling, peanuts, salty dryness, lemon, sweet potato, mago,
      nlemonliquorive, chalk, plaster, mild tar, savoury, pleasant. Heavy.
    • Finish
      Really good, salmiak-malt, gentle and bitter.

  3. Thermidor scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    I have zero regrets about listening to Serge w/rt this bottle because it shows that at its best Caol Ila can compete with the good Ardbegs and Ellens. It's rare I buy a second bottle of something expensive after pouring the first dram from a freshly opened bottle, but apparently it happens.
    • Nose
      First impression of the nose is an old library or antiquarian's shop. Dust, bookleather, old paper, worn wood floor. A shy smell of fresh plums. Very tired and age-worn sherry, a ghost of the bright sweet tones that come from first fills or finishes. Dry nail polish.
    • Taste
      Neat the taste has massive amounts of promise with a structure that has a surprisingly present sherry tone compared to the nose. It hits all the sherry notes lightly with none of them off. It's too high ABV to be meant to be drank neat though, as it's obvious that the strong alcohol presence is holding everything else down. With a few teaspoons of water the smoke comes out a bit more. Still burns a bit on the tongue but the dram's open now alright, and where there was numbness and ethanol there's now a deliciously fulfilling sherried, peaty and somewhat coal-sooty taste with loads of complexity. 
    • Finish
      Blood orange lemonade, burnt timber and seashore rocks.

    Caol Ila 29 yo 1984/2013 (54.7%, Signatory
    for The Whisky Exchange, refill sherry, cask #2758, 225 bottles)
    Warning, sherry!
    Colour: pale gold (phew). Nose: and yet the sherry
    feels, but it’s rather a fino-ish kind of sherry, with plenty of walnuts
    and a lot, and mean really a lot, of tobacco. Both cigarettes and Cuban
    cigars. Wonderful whiffs of sunbathed stones on a Greek island (excuse
    me?), some earth, some camphor, old clothes in an old wardrobe, old
    books, then even more cigars… This is truly spectacular, but I’ve
    already seen such noses that led to a wrecked palate, so vorsicht! With
    water:  it’s not the first time that I’ve thought that Caol Ila could be
    more medicinal than Laphroaig.
    Mouth (neat): immense, huge, massive,
    and yet very elegant. The resins and saps are coming out, which is just
    perfect. With water: a little more fruits and sweetness to bring
    civilisation to this oldish beast. A good load of salt too.
    Finish: long
    and extremely salty. Really very salty, was some manzanilla involved?
    Comments: tells you many stories. The kind of bottle to buy these days. SGP:556 - 92 points.

    I like the presentation of this kind of fruity style and the slightly acids in the aftertaste which I really enjoy it! BIG UP!
    fairly price and worth drinking!
