Whisky Reviews for Caol Ila 2006 GM

29 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.81 points

  1. Achany scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Nose was a bit disappointing at first, it took some time until aromas developed. The Taste was much more complex. Sweet sherry influence combined with some salt and bacon. A lot of peat, cold smoke, ashes, the influence of a permanent seabreeze. Just wonderful - the ABV was integrated nicley and did not need any water at all. Just a really nice peated dram!

  2. dram-drinker scored this whisky 87 points Moderator

    All in all it is pretty light and drinkable which is surprising given the 60+%abv - however, not going over 90 points
    • Nose
      Intense sea breeze, salty, smoked oysters, brown sugar, just little fruitiness
    • Taste
      Punchy, citric, fine peaty and smoky, a bit salty, peaches, apples
    • Finish
      Long and warm
