  7. magic_slim scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Very good Caol Ila bottling.
    • Nose
      Peaty, maritim and mineral aromas at first nosing. There are notes of paraffin, smoke and green apples as well. A lovely nose.
    • Taste
      Smoked apple with pepper and salt at first mouthfeel. Very spicy, dry and peaty. An oily licorice aroma and notes of ashes are coming up. Very nice and tasty.
    • Finish
      Long, warming from deep inside with notes of ashes and peat and a dry, dusty aftertaste.

  9. Albaron scored this whisky 86 points Specialist

    Very promising in the nose, but can not hold in the mouth and then mutates again to a typical Caol Ila, albeit one of the better. Definitely better than the 2014er
    • Nose
      Strong alcohol notes, kumquats, phenolic smoke, some ashes, oily, vanilla, some caramel
    • Taste
      sweet, phenolic smoke, vanilla, tannins, here too the kumquats, but more restrained, some oak and herbs, above all lies a liquor mist
    • Finish
      light smoke, fading and oak, quite long

  10. hs305 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    [June, 2015]  I had this dram during a "Feis Ile 2015" tasting at Bonn.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 90. I took no detailed notes.
