  1. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 282 bottles from cask 1954One of the classic Islay distilleries, Caol Ila is now in production 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – all to meet demand for its make.This refill American oak hogshead has produced a mid-gold, unoaked Chardonnay colour for its incumbent. As clean and sharp as a surgeon’s scalpel,  transiting from operating theatre to mouthwash, to a lovely Frisian Nagelkaas (Dutch soft cheese with cloves). The flavour is massive: sweet, vinegary, then typically tarry with a huge, acrid bonfire aftertaste.With water, the medicinal aromas become more like Elastoplast, with beach scents behind, and a vinyl polish like a new car interior.Mouth filling and sweet to start, a nice acidic interlude and then bags of smoke on the finish. The after effect is clean and satisfying – an excellent example of the make.
