Caol Ila 18 Bottling Note

A wonderfully balanced expression from the core Caol Ila range, this 18 year old is malty and thick with notes of Caol Ila smoke and phenols, a lovely Islay single malt without extreme levels of peat.

Caol Ila 18 Year Old Reviews

Who knew 43% could be so good?

At 43% 18yo is the sweet spot for this spirit. Luscious, creamy, fruity - a really under appreciated and under rated whisky.

My all time favorite

The best ever single malt imho.

does anyone remember Juicy Fruit gum?

reminds me very much of that flavor, kinda smoky cherry, with some pineapple and other fruit. Gets a solid 91 from me

well balanced

Top notch whisky very well balanced refined smoke and peat lovely long oily smokey finish
I much prefer older Islay whisky where it is more refined not just a big hit of peat

use a clencairn glass .......and sit back

One of the best ,not so peaty ,well balanced ....and the discussion where to store (Diageo....)and to distill it
is funny....
Together with bowmore´s 18 year old its a good choice for a dram or two after a hard day.....

Excellent Islay. One of the finest

Better is hard to find in this price

After the first sip this whisky has been one of my favourite. Amazing in this price category. The best Caol Ila tested.

The best whisky I can remember drinking. Easily.

This is probably not the best Caol Ila and not the best 18 year old I have tried. But it's unique in its own right. Floral notes.
