It is said Diageo will put more effort in Caol Ila and Tasiker next year.  It is certainly a good news to us.  Let's look at some of the "standard" bottles.

Caol Ila 12yo (43%, OB)

Award Sample.  Very peaty.  Strong.  Malty.  Some background nut.  Light and refreshing.  Must be bourbon cask only.  no sherry influence.  very light heather.  Score 88.

Caol Ila 10yo 1993/2003 (43%, Dun Bheagan Cask#3450-3452, 1,200b. Hogshead)

Sample from bird.  Light Yellow.  Very Nutty.  mint.  lightly peated.  no legs, thin.  a little bit caremel.  Feel like the Bowmore Legend.  Adding water nose gone but taste better. finished weak.  Score: 77.

Caol Ila 18yo (43%, OB)

Award sample. Mint. Nutty.  Peaty.  Soft body.  very sweat.  Must be some sherry inside but not too much.  sweet came from the malt.  Beautiful legs.  A very easy drinking one but not my style.  Score: 82.

Caol Ila 12yo 1991/2004 (50%, OMC, Cask#876, 360b. 6 months sherry finish)

 Award sample.  Very peaty.  sweet came from sherry for sure, mint.  Firm body.  Very nice malt.  Young and robust.  Finished short. Sweet in mouth.  Score: 88.

Caol Ila Cask Strength (55%, OB)

Light, lots of peat.  Flower. Strong, Just hit you in the heart.  I like it. Score:90.
