Caol Ila 17YO Unpeated Bottling Note

Another year and another delicious unpeated Caol Ila at the affordable end of Diageo's Special Releases In fact, this is now the tenth release in the series. At 17 years old, it's the oldest yet too, having been distilled in 1997.

Consider this similar product...

Seaweed & Sherry Cask

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Toffees. It really does smell just like toffees. Allspice, lots of brown sugar, a touch of anise, Cinnamon Grahams and even a hint of chilli.

Palate: Tangy toffee now, a little chalk and increasingly charred oak spice, charred oak and, yep, definitely some smoke in there...

Finish: What do you know, it's smoky!

Overall: The smokiest unpeated release for many years, with plenty of bourbon cask character.

Caol Ila 17 Year Old 1997 Unpeated (Special Release 2015) Reviews


Wow! This is a delicious dram! Sweet, spicy -- reminds me of chai spice and speculoos. A bit hot on the tongue due to the high strength. Unlike most Islays, this one can take a bit of water. Barley sugar and toffee on the undiluted palate. Long, luxurious finish with the barest hint of smoke.

Best Caol Ila out there

Peated Caol Ila is good, but the unpeated version is in a different league imo.
They should more of this, it certainly doesn't turn people off like the peaty version sometimes does.

This is simply outstanding, and a bargain at the price.
