Product details

Tasting note

  • Nose : fin, élancé. Très Caol Ila, le premier nez est marqué par des notes de fumée, de sel et d’olive verte. Progressivement, des notes de varech et de poisson fumé accentuent encore le caractère « bord de mer iodé » de cette version absolument remarquable. Dans le même temps, de la vanille et des fruits frais (poire, pomme) ainsi que des épices nobles et de l’herbe fraîchement coupée lui procurent beaucoup d’allant.
  • Palate : à la fois riche et pleine de finesse. Là aussi, l’attaque en bouche respire Caol Ila avec ses notes de marées presque de criée. L’orge maltée fumée et délicatement réglissée occupe une place prépondérante dans l’évolution de la palette gustative qui devient de plus en plus épurée. Légèrement mentholée comme anisée, l’arrière bouche est lumineuse.
  • Overall : longue, huileuse. Délicieusement fumée, elle évoque un magnifique Havane en combustion, elle est également toujours aussi marine avec ses notes de crustacés. Progressivement, du poivre noir et du sel viennent se déposer sur la langue. La rétro olfaction oscille entre la réglisse verte, l’orge maltée, les cendres et les plantes aromatiques.
The brand

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
