Whisky reviews for Caol Ila 2004 GM

One user has left a review for this whisky. Average rating is 85.00 points.

  1. notesofmalt scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Caol Ila 2004 - 2013, 46% alc. Bottler: Spirit of Scotland (Gordon MacPhail for vanWees, originally for the Dutch market) Maturation: Bourbon barrel No: 306462 Region: Isle of Islay, Scotland
    Nose: A harmonious first start with a lot of peat smoke. Clear and fresh, bandage and phenol. Add vanilla and a light sweetness that carries vanilla. The focus remains on the medical character: bandages, phenol and iodine.
    Palate: Smoky, light spiciness, vanilla - again a simple and clear line with medicinal notes. There are also light citrus fruits. Creamy mouthfeel.
    Finish: Long and warming, sweeter than the palate. The peat smoke holds back discreetly - but remains for a long time.
    Conclusion: Similar to younger Port Ellen. Straightforward and typical.
    85/100 points (tasted 2015, approx. 40 €) Thanks to Theresia Tammer (Whisky house) for photo and sample.
