Whisky Reviews for Caol Ila 07-year-old ElD

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.00 points

  1. thebonewolf scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    There is more ethanol sensation on the nose than I’d ever expect from this proof, but the light feel of the finish lines up with that. I suppose that color means they definitely let the focus of this be the malt rather than the cask. All in all, it was nice, but a bit “hot.”
