All about making whisky
Caol Ila is the Gaelic name for the ‘Sound of Islay’, the sound that separates Islay from its neighbour Jura, in one of the wildest and most beautiful regions on 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. Distilled in December 1996, this single malt was bottled in 2009 in honour of Islay’s Annual Festival of Malt & Music.

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
