Our experts reviews“ Over a hundred different versions of Caol Ila have seen the day in the past 20 years. A flagship single malt for independent bottlers, it is also La Maison du Whisky’s best-selling Islay. Over time, the Caol Ila’s incredibly smoky peat morphs into a light peat infused with marine notes. The same goes for this official 18 Year Old, our star pick that is also characterised by beautiful notes of sweet almond and smoked fish.
Over a hundred different versions of Caol Ila have seen the light of day in the past 20 years. It is one of the flagship single malts for independent bottlers and our best selling Islay whisky. Over time, Caol Ila’s formidable peat-led character softens and it develops pronounced maritime notes, as shown in this 18 Year Old. Undoubtedly one of the standouts from the Caol Ila stable
- Appearance : old gold.
- Nose : fruity and alluring, with floral notes alongside citrus, vanilla and olive oil. The dying embers of a seaside bonfire.
- Palate : powerful yet approachable. Cedar wood, roasted almonds and smoke. Olive oil reappears.
- The brand
As well as reflecting its smoky, malted barley, Caol Ila is also oily and peaty, with marine and vegetable notes. Its recent official bottlings, which are particularly expressive, have an intense smoky and peaty character with a good balance of saltiness and sweetness. Superb versions of this single malt have also been released by independent bottlers Gordon MacPhail & Signatory Vintage. Caol Ila’s stills, which are large and onion-shaped, have a strong influence on this single malt and give it a fairly light and delicate character. Find out more

Rappelle le parfum du Moch en plus généreux. Question que je me pose ? Est ce que ça vaut la différence de prix ou est ce que mle Moch me suffit?

Magnifique whisky. Très complexe. La tourbe s'est assagie laissant place à des aromes et des saveurs acidulées délicieuses. Un whisky de dégustation
