Caol Ila 12 Year Old Reviews

Outstanding. Highly recommend.

I have just returned from a shopping trip to Harrods London. Where I was introduced to this. amazing whiskey. By an Amazing waitress in the bar there. Myself and friends asked what do you recommend. A good whiskey. She said ok . Leave it with me. Came back to our table. With a double each. We was blown away by this. And we had another 3 each. I will be drinking this for years to come. With a good cigar. PaulR. UK.

Very Good value Islay

Excellent quality Islay malt, with integrated smoke, citrus and a long peppery finish.

Earthy, Rich, & Smokey

A terrific whiskey with plenty of body and richness. Intensely smokey on the nose, palette and finish but never sickening. A new favourite and well earned reputation as quintessential Islay.

Given that it is twenty or more years since I purchased Scottish whiskey ,three years Irish! this was a pleasant reminder of that smoking peat that makes Scottish whiskey from the Islands unique.

Smokey joy

The best Islay whisky for me. This has a good balance of flavours and that includes the peat. I used to drink Talisker Storm but Coal Ila has the edge - better quality and more rounded edges. One of the best whiskies under £40. Wonderful smokiness.

Great value, nice finish

Current favourite Islay at this price point. Particularly enjoy the long spicy finish.

Excellent dram

Absolutely lovely.light peat and smoke and very smooth oily feel in the mouth.i preferred it to Ardbeg and Lagavulin 16.ive tasted most of the peaty smokey ones and the only one better than this for me is tallasker dark storm.really enjoyed it close to perfect for me

Hunting for flavours

The first few times I had this, it was practically enemic which is rare for an Islay.
However if your patient enough there are some nice subtle notes and a peppery finish.
Much better Islays out there however

Very Smooth

Nice drinkable Islay malt

Not overly peaty and drinkable. Is a relatively clear pale whisky in colour and smooth to drink. A nice contrast to Laphorhaig. A few drops of cold water also changes the aromatic notes. An easy drink by the fire!
