  1. Dre73 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Beautiful whisky, full flavor, nice balance between peat, sweet and sweet-fruity.
    • Nose
      Peat, leather, light smoke. fruity, rubber, honey, caramel. Spicy, salty. After a few nips, the alcohol gets stronger and stronger in the smell.
    • Taste
      Salmiak in the beginning, peat and smoke. Light pepper. Then it comes sweet, honey, caramel, and apricot.
    • Finish
      Long, slightly peppery, peat. Again apricot, honey. Drogig, very light bitterness in the background.

    Very beautiful Caol Ila with an incredibly complex nose that goes very well without water. I did not even try it with water. The fact that he could not convince on the tongue and on the finish, even if he is still very good, prevents a rating of 90+, even if the nose had earned it.
    • Nose
      First, a huge rush of red wine rises in your nose. After a few minutes, the other notes come along and form a wonderfully harmonious overall picture. Tender smoke, slightly salty with smoked, apple juice, caramelized cotton candy, sweet popcorn. The smoke is slowly increasing in intensity, everything stays wonderfully balanced. The alcohol holds back elegantly. Now comes some floor wax, quite strong even, then goes over in old leather. Constant change, always new associations. When it comes to temperature, the wine becomes stronger again, along with fresh fruity notes, fruit candy and also a bit of mint.
    • Taste
      Again quite clear wine notes, it develops a pleasant sweetness, the alcohol warms vigorously, but is very well integrated. Caol Ila typically it is quite oily and also brings with it salty smoked notes.
    • Finish
      Medium long finish, which warms pleasantly and in turn brings now also very tart, beautiful oak notes. Sweet-salty, it goes slowly, the oak becomes milder, the smoke coats the mouth a little longer with slightly mineral notes.

    Tried just another Caol Ila single cask and I do not like it as all the others. The peat smoke destroys any other flavor. The only Caol Ila I like so far is the "unpeated" which leaves space or do not cover all the other flavors!

  10. Ostfriese scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A beautiful Caol Ila who likes to please.
    • Nose
      Light smoke, dark fruits, red grapes, sweet, caramel and light salty notes.
    • Taste
      Strong sweetness, slightly oily, spices and cold smoke
    • Finish
      Warming with oak notes, the sweetness is back and also the slightly salty notes.
