Caol Ila 12 Years
Peated Single Malt — Islay, Scotland
Reviewed August 4, 2021 (edited September 10, 2021)
Tasting the Caol Ila this evening. Special appearance form the new Snifting glasses from The nose is light with smokey apple. Hints of the seaside thanks to the coastal region. The first sip and I’m hooked to the salty and sweet mix of fruit and sea-weed. It really is an incredible taste with a medium peat that is swimming in a smooth elegant fullness. Add a drop of water and the mouthfeel gets fuller and obviously lighter. The medicinal notes smooth out but the fruitiness disappears. This is a great whisky neat that is rich in flavour and powerfully full.
