The Whisky Exchange – Caol Ila – 18 YO – Tasting Notes

Coal Ila – 18YO – 56,1% ABV

Nose
Smoky, sweet, maritime notes, apricots, seaweed, warm, a dense nose…

Palate
Peaty, warm, heather, peaches, apricots, soft, minty, sweet, chocolate, red fruits, vanilla

Finish
Warm and sweet, long and creamy finish. With just a hint of wood in the back.

Score
Gave this one a good 8 out of 10. Just like a piece of candy this one, rich palate… Has a strong sweet tone in it, can be a little bit overpowering, but is good balanced with the smoky and minty fresh tones in it to keep it just in balance.
