  1. hs305 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    [October, 2004]  I had this dram during an "Islay" special 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 85.  Unfortunately I took no detailed notes except that water improves it a little bit (score 87,5 with water).

    Beautiful, old, round, fruity and full-bodied Caol Ila, who also gives something with his 43%.

  4. Allandale scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Coastal complexity
    • Nose
      Complex: seafood? Fruit, ash, some smoke, medicinal streak.
    • Taste
      Fresh oysters, but also lemon juice, peat smoke, ash, some green fruit.
    • Finish
      Very pure classical in style and delicious.

    This might be the best of Caol Ila

  6. Feusi scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    The end of a legend, because this bottling is hardly available. A beautiful, soft Caol Ila.
