Caol Ila 12 year
70 cl / 43%
Caol Ila lacks as single malt of the exposure and praise it has as a tool for whisky blenders.
It is a medium weight, but still packing plenty of potent phenols, this is a refined, powerful dram with a compensating oiliness. A balanced, peaty beauty.
If you like Caol Ila you should try Ardbeg Uigeidail.

“So earthy... no wonders I keep mistaking this Caol Ila one with Ardbeg, strong peat, earth and citrus aromas”This dram has a fino-like color.
Nose (90): more than average. honey, peat, citrus, wood. Pure peat-xperience.
Taste (91): powerful, oily. peat, honey, earthy, citrus, vanilla, pepper. Peated and earthy... just miss the coffee notes of Ardbeg
Finish (90): longer than average. peat, honey, citrus, earth.
