Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : jaune doré soutenu.
  • Nose : au premier nez, le distillat nous laisse savourer une tourbe minérale (terreuse). Puis, il gagne en fraîcheur et se fait de plus en plus herbacé (herbe coupée, rosée du matin en forêt).
  • Palate : l’attaque en bouche est huileuse à souhait, tourbée mais cette fois-ci dans un registre empyreumatique (braise, cendre). Le milieu de bouche est quant à lui délicieusement végétal (anis, orgeat, opoponax).
  • Overall : longue, par son aspect braisé et son âcreté (fenouil braisé), elle se révèle chaleureuse. La rétro-olfaction est pétrolifère et épicée (piment langue d’oiseau). Un dernier tableau nous laisse admirer un aspect plus gourmand avec une tourbe aux accents fruités (marmelade d’orange). Le verre vide est animal (viande maturée).
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



Valinch & Mallet is a young Italian independent bottler of single cask bottled at natural cask strength without chill-filtration. It was created by two individuals, coming from different backgrounds, united by the common passion for whisky and the desire to transform it into a profession. Each cask of whisky being unique by nature, this characteristic is transferred to the bottles: each of them has a handmade metallic plaque, where the information of each specific cask has been engraved by a fine blacksmith, thus creating unique works of art.
