Whisky Reviews for Caol Ila 2007 AD

    Decent just not my preferred taste. First fill Oloroso and the Caol Ila distillery character do not seemingly mix here to me. The nose is restrained, dominated by the cask but with banana peeking through.
    The taste is astringent and where it all goes wrong, the sweet caol ila profile goes against the heavy oloroso notes to make for a strange partnership. Banana bonfire smoke mixes with walnuts, cherries and raisins in an awkward and strange encounter
    The finish is strange on the same notes as above but there is no bitterness and it is fairly long (some positives!)

    I'm sure many people will love this (eg "peat heads" wanting a hit of sherry or "sherry heads" wanting a hit of peat) but I just can't get on board with it.
