Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : jaune citron.
  • Nose : fin, typé. Minéral (craie), épicé, (girofle), fumé (charbon), végétal (agave), fruité (poire) et marqué par les plantes aromatiques (thym, sarriette) et les agrumes (citron, pamplemousse), il est enrobé d’un voile de cendres. L’orge maltée est omniprésente (herbe fraîche, menthol).
  • Palate : douce, onctueuse. C’est la fumée qui tient la barre. La mer est calme. Les fruits sont là à profusion, certains sont confits (prune), d’autres exotiques (ananas), d’autres plus juteux (orange sanguine). Elle évolue sur le coing, la noix fraîche et le sirop d’érable. Le poisson fumé, le sel et l’iode soulignent son caractère marin.
  • Overall : tendre, délicate. Des notes de tourbe, de réglisse et de menthe poivrée sortent de leur réserve pour prendre les choses en mains. La cardamome et la noix muscade apportent du rythme. Elle est nourrie par des notes de vanille et de pistache. Le verre vide révèle une orge maltée fumée et terreuse (gentiane).
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
