Caol Ila 12 Year Old is of medium weight, but still packing plenty of potent phenols, this is a refined, powerful dram with a compensating oiliness. A balanced, peaty beauty..

    I love peat single malt. This is probably my new favorite. Amazing. Sharp, brine, sea salt, apple. Love it.

    Smoky and peaty tastes throughout, leaving it almost medicinal. Not for me.

    A very good dram, one to enjoy slowly. It has a very nice finish. Nice to relax with and take it all in.

    Wonderful! A perfect balance of smoke and sweetness. So light and dry it's almost ethereal. Faeries have just danced on my tongue!

    Bought this one after a friend recommendation and... Jesus it is bad ! I am big fan of islay single malts, but really, this one is not for me. The nose is already badly balanced with a hint of fruits and then Peat and Tar overpowering. The attack is smooth with gentle banana I guess, and then again peat. Reminds me of the Laga 8 yo, which is all about peat as well, really not my cup of tea. I really like when it is peaty and smoky, but it has to be well balanced, complex like the lagavulin 16yo, ardbeg Corryvrekan, Springbank 10yo, Laphroaig triple wood for instance.
