Caol Ila / Douglas Laing

Caol Ila 5yr Provenance (Douglas Laing) Review

Caol Ila 5 provenance Many thanks to JJ at Whisky Rover who kindly shared a generous sample of this smoky monster from his bottle.

With huge powerful phenoic smoke, lots of sooty notes this is the ideal dram for anyone who likes their whiskies smoky, and being a youthful 5 year old the smoke comes think and fast.

Available to buy from specialists like Master of Malt.

Thanks again to JJ for the sample.
