Caol Ila 30 year old 1982 - 4th release (Archives)
- Distillery: Caol Ila
Archives, bottlers for Netherlands and creators of whiskybase.com do some very nice releases. This one - good example.
Aroma: sweet peat with lemon and drops of honey. Wet wood coal and salt. Feels like sitting to bonfire at the sea on the rain. Water gives more fruitiness - lemon notes, also pineapple and orange.
The ratings system that we use is based on personal opinion and reflects only a personal momentary impression about the tasted whiskey. We do not represent any producers of whiskey and we are not in the whiskey business ourselves. However, we have our personal sympathies for particular whiskeys. We are human, therefore the ratings that we give are subjective. Furthermore, they are given with comparisons to other whiskeys in mind. We decided to use convienent and widely used 100 points system.
