Caol Ila Very Young Whisky-Doris


Der Caol Ila Very Young Whisky-Doris hat uns auf Anhieb sehr gut gefallen. Hätten wir nicht gewusst, was für ein „Baby“ wir gerade verkosten, wir hätten ihn deutlich älter eingeschätzt.

Trotz der 59,4% riecht er keineswegs spritig oder unreif, das Mundgefühl ist erstaunlich rund und ausgewogen. Er ist ein typischer Caol Ila mit viel Rauch, Früchten, einer gewissen Öligkeit und einem atemberaubend langen Abgang.

Beurteilung von Serge Valentin (

Caol Ila ‘Very Young’ (59.4%, Whisky-Doris, 2006) This one is bottled for German online retailer Previous bottlings were very good, I thought. Nose: not as rough as expected but typically uncomplicated and compact. Peat, smoke, ashes, stones, a little lemon juice and a dash of pepper and that’s it, ite Missa est. Ah, yes, also whiffs of fermenting hay and maybe a little manure. A flawless youngster that will neither make you scratch your head, nor frown. Mouth: quite oily, with lots of sweetness now, probably from the alcohol. Astonishingly drinkable at such high strength. Develops on grapefruits, lemon skins and seeds, peat of course… Something bitterly vegetal (endives), quite some liquorice, something rooty… Exactly the same comments: it’s simple, straightforward but flawless. For true peatheads or people who’d like to try new kinds of cocktails, as I guess this one would make for an excellent kind of high-octane ti-punch (1 measure whisky, 1 measure lemon juice, a dash of candy sugar and one mint leave or two. To be served chilled!) In short, a good one again. 81 points.
