Customer Rating

Light in colour, but dark and peaty in flavour, this 2007 vintage Caol Ila was bottled exclusively for The Whisky Exchange by Signatory Vintage after eight years of maturation in a bourbon barrel.

Well done TWE! Totally up my alley. 90 points. Serge Valentin, whiskyfun.com

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes by Billy A

    Nose: Soft, sweet and earthy peat, with a flash of sea-spray sharpness. Rich sweetness emerges from behind the smoke – malt loaf, sultanas, salted caramel and hints of fruity dark chocolate. Time in the glass reveals lighter flavours of lemon, lime and sweet Muscat grapes.


    Palate: Sweet and savoury up front, with salted nuts meeting barley sugar and hints of Parma violets. Rich and earthy peat smoke sits at the core, with a surround of citrus and clove.


    Finish: Sharp lime and apple, gravelly smoke and rye crispbread fade to dark chocolate and cinnamon spice.


    Comment: Much darker in character than the light colour suggests, with a weighty backbone complemented by zesty and spicy flavours.

    At this price this one should be a no-brainer for any fan of spirit-forward peaters. Really commendable stuff and the only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is because I have to have something left to give to bottles like Cl7 was.
