Whisky Reviews for Caol Ila 12-year-old

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.33 points

  1. SAND scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    NOSE: Quite fat, oily and slightly sweet peat smoke. Some iodine, sea water, old wooden salt water soaked boat, sweet malt, bourbon barrel; dried yellow fruits and a little dried coconut and vanilla. (88-89p) Water makes the nose less oily, less sweet less peaty, displaying more dry malt and bourbon cask notes as well as heather honey. (88-89p)
    TASTE: The arrival is salty, mildly sweet and just a little peppery. On the mid palate there’s more sweetness of the bourbon kind; toffee, dried orchard fruits, vanilla and a hint of coconut. Also peaty notes. (88p) Water makes the taste oilier and slightly more peppery. Rich white wine. (89p)
    FINISH: Dried ginger, pepper, slight sweetness, honey, a hint of custard. (85-86p) With water the exit becomes slightly sweeter, less peppery and takes on leathery and farmyard like qualities. (88-89p)
    TOTAL SCORE 88.5 points
