  1. Vince scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Excellent example of Caol Ila. Somewhat austere; great with Sashimi/Sushi, as the great Michael Jackson said.

    Tried at the most excellent and cosy Bar Caol Ila in Shibuya, Tokyo (very close to the station). Extremely knowledgeable proprietors and great value drams.

  2. Lrandell scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    It's already an excellent smell of kerosene. Pulled to full, the rest is vanilla lemon and a little bit of nuts. When I wake up, the nuts are gone and the entrance is not thorn at all. I specially picked up the bottle and took a look, 52.4Alc, good guy, drinking like 42, but the whole taste is rather bland, the flavor is not very good, it is slightly monotonous, it is worth mentioning that the nutty flavor comes back and the finish is not short, although there is nothing special, but it is not short, at first I thought it was over-oxidation Now, it has only been opened for a month after I asked, so maybe this wine is like this. It is necessary to mention that the middle and back parts of this wine have a rotten feeling, which is thin, powerless, and old-fashioned. This is not a good thing.
