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.
TASTING NOTES BY THE WHISKY EXCHANGE
Nose: Intense and rich, with malted barley and gentle floral touches overcome by smoky notes.
Palate: Light and fresh, with toffee, vanilla and pear balanced by smoke and ashy touches.
Finish: Complex and long, with sweetness fading to leave dark and smoky flavours.
