Whisky Reviews for Caol Ila 1993 IM

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.83 points

  1. HunterRomario scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Classical Islay, but still a bit different, drier, even if still pleasantly iodine. Very balanced flavor, great piece to whom Laphroaig tastes, he can not be disappointed. Chieftains, and generally independent fulfillment, I will have to try to explore more often.
    • Nose
      So here I am at home - clear Islay at first, typically iodine and straw added to it.
    • Taste
      Oily, iodine sweetness.

  2. Collector57 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior


    Very nice
    • Nose
      typically CI but with an extra fruity layer and, um, raisins I think Smoke and iodine

       
    • Taste
      oily mouthfeel as expected, with all the nose present in the palate. Very smooth and warming
    • Finish
      quite long and deep. Smoke lingering. Just the slightest trace of bitterness to offset the smoothness

  3. I_SPEY scored this whisky 95 points Expert Senior

    The colour is pale gold and the nose opens with ripe banana skin or banana flambé, then iodine and dry peat; the taste brings peat(of course!) as well as sweetness and sophisticated, spicy smoke with finally a  creamy, spicy and peaty finish.
    For me this realy is a Cracker, A Fabulous whisky!
