Caol Ila 12 yo, 43%

Review #775
This has the botllecode L1341CM000. It´s the classic 12 year old Caol Ila, and it´s as classic Caol Ila as it gets in the smell! Sweet vanilla peat. Ashes and fresh white fruits. Simple but good.

Very smooth for an Islay whisky in the taste. It is lightly peated and some grassy notes joins the white fruits. The finish is medium long with a little bit of everything going. The sweet vanilla peat stays the longest though.

Just a great, easy going, introduction to Caol Ila. No alcohol burn, lightly peated and sweet. I might be a bit watery if you are used to cask strength whiskies, and I wouldn’t recommend water. I will give this 84/100 (21/21/21/21).
