Whisky Reviews for Caol Ila 1996 DD

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.71 points

  1. Calmar scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

      Quite a mole, fairly diverse in the components, well balanced, drink, but somehow does not cling, it seems a little artificial and unnatural, a kind of ersatz-product sensation, nothing like not justified, but nonetheless.
    • Nose
      Restrained, warm, smoke-lemon, salty, smoked metal, smoked bacon, burnt branches, warm ash.
    • Taste
      Smoky-smoked, lemon, caramel sweetness, oak, a wide palette of cereals, down to the moonshine, shades;
    • Finish
      Pepper-lemon on a soft smoked-smoked background, grated sugar, oak bitterness, caramel, dried apples, warming, long-lasting.

  2. CrilleVBG scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    An interesting Caol Ila, but not mind blowing..
    • Nose
      Sweet smoke. Lemon and tobacco.
    • Taste
      Less smoke and more fruitiness, then the standard Caol Ila.
    • Finish
      Medium long finish, sweet peat.

  3. magic_slim scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Tasty and a good daily dram but nothing extraordinary.
    • Nose
      Warming, fresh and clean. Peat, lemons and fresh apples.
    • Taste
      Warming and peaty. White pepper and apples.
    • Finish
      Medium long, clean and balanced. White pepper, creamy peat, slightly salty.
