CAOL ILA 8 YEAR OLD Unpeated

Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Islay, 70cl, Ref: COL13930

Caol Ila is the Gaelic name for the ‘Sound of Islay’, the strait that separates Islay from its neighbour Jura in one of the wildest and most beautiful regions of Scotland’s west coast. This distillery produces the richest Islay malt, easily recognizable by its notes of olive oil, smoke, fruit and a marine freshness. This 8 year-old version, the youngest Caol Ila ever produced, asserts its originality. Contrary to a traditional Caol Ila, this whisky is not particularly smoky, not in the least peaty, but still has the characteristic oily, fruity notes. Matured in bourbon barrels and bottled cask strength in 2006, only small quantities are produced. Not to be missed!

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
