Top reviews for Caol Ila 18 Year Old:

— This has to be one of my favorite Islay scotches. I always describe it as "Imagine if a scotch would dance all around on your tongue. That's Caol Ila". It can dance on my tongue any day.

— Best I've tried yet.

— Incredible Islay. Love the viscosity...just coats the mouth and peat is perfect. Can't imagine there's a better Islay out there but I'll hold off on giving this a perfect 10 rating to be safe.

john,
i love it -it is not finished yet. it has a pleasant flavour, almost as good as the 25yo that has finshed a while ago. i find the phenols in the younger ones somewhat overpowering
