Whisky Reviews for Creations 25-year-old CA

10 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.62 points

  1. Dre73 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Wonderful whiskey, tingling and simmering for a long time, sweetish smoke.
    • Nose
      It starts with smoke, but very subtle, soft. Some fruity through it, citrus, orange. Spicy also, and sweet, honey. Light peat and rubber, and after a while comes the smell of a fire basket.
    • Taste
      Real wood fire smoke, some cigar tobacco too, very soft, full and creamy. Also some orange-like fruitiness through it.
    • Finish
      Very light pepper now in the throat. Wood fire smoke weather, honey, wood tones. Long finish, and what especially lingers in the mouth is a sweet smoky taste.

  2. detachedblue scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Smoky BBQ, some rich sherry, the integration is not perfect but still good, very easy drinking, quickly finished a bottle...

  6. rdavek scored this whisky 90 points Specialist

    A beautifully balanced smoky dram.  Mellow smoke, as you'd expect at this age, balanced with fruity sweetness and an herbal complexity. I tasted this at the Cadenhead Dornoch tasting and the fact that this stood out for me amongst the spectacular whiskies we had speaks volumes. These Cadenhead Creations bottlings are among the finest and best value whiskies bottled in recent years, IMHO.

  7. The Macallan scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Cadenhead 175th anniversary tasting castle Dornoch 22/11/2017

    N: soft smokyness, medicinal and spicy

    P: mild smoky palate, briny and a touch of fruit

    F: drying, juicy, warming smokyness

    C: not a bad blended malt

  10. LukeFive did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    From Cadenheads webpage:

    Made by Vatting together Ardbeg, Bowmore, Caol Ila in a sherry hogshead since October 2013 until bottling in the summer of 2017. 

    From Bens whisky webpage:

    This is Ardbeg, Bowmore and Caol Ila, which were (according to Mark Watt) mixed together to go into a live cask in the Campbeltown shop in 2004 and ended up languishing in the warehouse until 2013, when they were put into a sherry hogshead. And something about most of this being released before, and some left for later?
