  3. Sb17sw scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Very peaty, salt, seaweed and smoke on the nose.

    Crisp and iodine and medicinal on the palate

    Finish short and salty

    In many ways a typical CI but rather dissapointing on the palate.

  4. erikz scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    Very young tasting and crisp Caol Ila expression. Nose has lots of anise, lemon rind, briny notes. Even some floral notes entering the nose. Medicinal and hints of chloride. Taste is crisp, heaps of anise, some sour candy, hints of lemon, little pepper and menthol in the back. Body is weak. Could not do with less then the 48ish abv. Would be lost if it had any less. Finish rather short. 

    As a Caol Ila fan I like this, but this would be way better at cask strength.
