Caol Ila 13 Year Old - Discovery (Gordon & MacPhail) Reviews


Wow, I think I have a new favourite. Very peaty, but with a rich sweetness.

Very easy on the palate...smooth all the way around.
Very happy with this scotch

Very delicate and nuanced. Light in colour and flavour. Fragrant marine quality. Lots of typical seaweedy smoky notes but more ephemeral not in a punch-you-in-the-face way.

will buy more

Much less peat and iodine than the regular Caol Ila 12, making room for rich and sweet fruit, almost christmassy. For my taste, as a fan of Highland Park, more in my comfort zone than most other Islay malts. A keeper without doubt.

Very Nice

I was actually disappointed in this. Don't get me wrong, it's nice; very nice, but I had the preconception that it would knock my socks off, but it didn't. It is not anywhere close to being bad, but it is slightly delicate and the peat is a lot more understated than my previous experiences of Caol Ila. It is very nice though and quite an easy drink. I think I could polish a bottle of this off in couple of nights. Just under £50 a bottle is probably good value too.

Really beautiful

A really nice whiskey with great flavours. Something unique, but not too far off the beaten track!
