Caol Ila / The Whisky Barrel

Caol Ila 27 Year Old (The Whisky Barrel) Review

Caol Ila 27Year Old Next in my series of The Whisky Barrel Exclusive bottlings is this beautiful Caol Ila 27 Year Old.

Specially picked out for new incarnation of the The Whisky Barrel website by independent bottlers Douglas Laing this Caol Ila which matured on Islay throughout its 27 years in a sherry hogshead fits the bill perfectly.

Thank you to The Whisky Barrel

Tasting Notes & Details


Huge Peat smoke invasion subsides to tobacco leaves, sweet dried fruit cake and a touch of antiseptic


thick sherry sweetness with lots of fruit and peat smoke


lasts and gives more seems to return from the chest
