Caol Ila 12 Year Old Reviews

Refined.

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!

Worth trying

Quite enjoyed it, pretty much what I’d expect from a 12 year old Islay single malt.

Disagreeable taste

The worst single malt whiskey I’ve ever tasted.
I have generally enjoyed most 12 year old single malts. Each have their own characteristic tastes but from the first taste of this one it did not feel right. I kept trying for a week to see if I could get used to it but each time it was definitely not agreeable.

Disappointed beyond eords

Extremely disappointed, a pleasant enough whiskey but doesn’t, in my opinion have the characteristics of an Islay SM and could very easily be confused with a cheap supermarket blend. Will stick to Laphroaig for true peaty Smokey loveliness
