Whisky reviews for Caol Ila 1979 Shi

One user has left a review for this whisky. Average rating is 91.90 points.

  1. zzs0529 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    Scent: Classical Aile Island Calella, salty sea breeze and fresh earth after the rain, light lime and orange peel, a touch of silk, fresh purple grape;

    Entrance: It is so energetic, dark chocolate, lime and smoked bacon, more lemon and orange peel, and a touch of peat;

    End rhyme: Wow, full fire, raspberry, dark chocolate, lemon cake, burnt wood, lime, a lost peat and smoky flavor.
