2.0 out of 5 stars Way too smokey. Buy with caution.
Kept trying this, but couldn't enjoy it. Neither could my pals. Only got into whisky this year and polished off bottles of Glenmorangie, Old Pulteney, Glenfiddich, Balvennie ... All great. But Caol Ila just tastes of cigarettes. I know the 'smokey' taste is agreeable to many whisky drinkers, but this is extreme. Doesn't taste as bad as it smells, but it's hard to get...

5.0 out of 5 stars Deserves to be more well known, 8 Jun. 2015

This review is from: Caol Ila 12 Year Old Whisky 70 cl (Wine)
One of the less well known Islay malts, and not always easy to come by, Caol Ila deserves to be more well known. It has long been amongst my favourites, albeit not quite as high up in my ranking as Ardbeg and Lagavulin. One of the peatier, smokier varieties (though not quite so much as Lagavulin and Laphroaig), it may be a bit too tarry, phenolic and 'medicinal' for many, especially on the aftertaste. If however you are partial to any of the aforementioned varieties, you will likely appreciate this.

I love this whisky. It's one of my favorite islay malts. Lovely and peaty, but not harsh.

Very good Whisky, I love my peaty whiskys and thought I'd give this one a go. I usually go for Laphroig, recently ventured to Ardbeg and this is right up there in terms of quality. It's slightly milder than the 2, especially Laphroig but is a lovely smoky peaty Whisky to enjoy in the evenings as a tipple before bed.

5.0 out of 5 stars I just fell in love with it, 14 Dec. 2014
This review is from: Caol Ila 12 Year Old Whisky 70 cl (Wine)
That was the first single malt I have tasted and I was overwhelmed by the scent and the taste, so different from all the blended malts I have ever experienced. It was so smoky and peaty, yet mellow and harmonious. I just fell in love with it. Now I have to try some other Islay single malts.
