Whisky Reviews for Cooley 1992 CA

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.94 points

  1. ARDBERG scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Lots of bandages, iodine and a bit of cinnamon.

    Came in No. 2 of the 10 175th anniversary shop editions.

    The tasting of all 10 bottlings for the 175th was rather dissapointing (100ml samples, 5 people and all of us were quite disenchanted). Hey, Cadenhead, is this the best you can offer for this occasion? If so, why taste anything Cadenhead in the future? I think this is a big opportunity missed for building great faith in your products in the years to come. And somehow I refuse to believe this is the best you can do.

    My rates for the 175th anniversary shop bottling incl. Aberdeen:
    Tullibardine 82 (really?)
    Glenburgie 85
    Springbank 85
    Pulteney 87
    Teaninich 87
    Bowmore 87
    Laphroaig 88 (a shame for a 1998)
    Cooley 89
    Bruichladdich 89
    Arran 90 ( who would have thought this would be number 1?)

    Please, not all Germans like sulphur, i.e. Tullibardine/Springbank. There were so many beautiful bottlings of late, why this now? What did you bottle for the 150th? Worlds apart. Sadly.
