    This batch still belongs to the good old Islay's. It is clearly better than later 2018 batches I have tried, it has more body, a deeper and heavyer smell and I find it more complex. Despite the fact that, in general, all whiskies have dropped quality considerably due to the increase in world demand, Caol Ila 12yo will remain a whisky that I will always have open.
