Caol Ila 12 2008 Bordeaux Bottling Note

12 year old single malt from Islay's coastal Caol Ila Distillery, which was initially matured in a hogshead cask before enduring a finishing period in a Bordeaux wine barrique. Smoke meets sweet here, with plenty of character and flavour to enjoy. This one was bottled up by DS Tayman, with just 388 bottles produced.

Caol Ila 12 Year Old 2008 Bordeaux Edition - DS Tayman Reviews


Baked fruit on the nose, some citrus, honey with spices, a little sea and here the first surprise is little to non smoke

On the tongue it is a completely different matter slightly oily first strikes the taste of burnt wood later adds the taste of smoked fruit to finally provide the last sweet-pepper aftertaste

A long, peppery, honey-like finish, however, quickly gives way to a smoky sweet aftertaste that remains until the end

And what can I say in relation to other Caol Ila is that it is a more delicate, contoured and refined (in my opinion, of course) position

Only my second dram but please read

Despite being finished in a wine cask. It tastes very much like an ardbeg uigeadail.

It’s not as strong but surprisingly tastes similar.

It doesn’t have the clove thing that uigeadail has, especially towards the end of the bottle.

The smoke is up there. Not quite ardbeg. If ardbeg is 10 this is a 7.5. But that’s actually good. The peat is a very similar taste and smell, as with other IB caol ila.

I think for the price this is brilliant.

I was hesitant to buy and looked for reviews online. Couldn’t find much so took a punt.

There’s only 388 bottles so realise that me putting this on MOM might put this out of stock but I’m just being a nice guy….

It really just tastes like a peated sherried whisky, which there isn’t too many of. If that’s your thing snap it up for £46.
