  1. Pxrider scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Caol Ila 12 yo (43%, OB, +/- 2016) Yes we’re trying a newer batch almost every year. Colour: white wine. Nose: gherkin and olive brine, oysters, seaweed, bandages, grapefruits. Rather more medicinal than you would think. Mouth: sweeter and a little rounder, but bright, salty, lemony, ashy, peaty… You don’t need any more literature, do you? (yeah, like, you and literature, S.!) Finish: medium, very fresh, smoky, peaty, and lemony. Iodine. A drop of apple juice in the aftertaste, as well as a little candy sugar. Comments: certainly not just a beginner’s peater, and absolutely not a ‘light’ peated whisky. In other words, anytime, anywhere. SGP:346 - 85 Points.
