“When you stop finishing whiskies or trying mad cask combinations and just keep ageing it in a good cask you get such great whiskies like this Caol Ila.”
This dram has a amber-like color.
Nose (91): more than average. peat, salt, iodine, citrus, sea, tropical fruits. A pure Caol Ila pleasure.
Palate (92): smooth, powerful, oily. peat, salt, citrus, floral, wood, pepper.
Finish (92): longer than average. peat, citrus, herbal, spices.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Caol Ila Old Malt Cask 27 year 1984 The Whisky Barrel with 92 points over 100.
Thanks to The Whisky Barrel for this nice official sample.
