CAOL ILA 2003 Aged 15 Years 8th Edition ARTIST S.V 54,2%

Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Islay, 70cl, Ref: 55209

Quantity limited to 1 bottle(s) by client.

Founded in 1846, the Caol Ila distillery was entirely rebuilt in 1974 according to the plans of architect George Leslie Darge. Equipped with six imposing pot stills, it produces a single malt that not only delights big-name master blenders but also independent bottlers. This particularly expressive and truly magnificent version transports us in the true sense of the word. Relentlessly traversed by curls of smoke and an exquisitely gentle sea breeze, the aromatic palette is a succession of wild sequences and moments of peace and tranquillity.

Profile: the elegant initial nose is characterized by notes of smoked salmon, candied lemon, almond milk and fine hail. Allowed to breathe, it becomes floral (peony) and ashy. The stately attack reveals a liquorice peat covered in salt. The well-balanced finish offers a taste of oily and salty (seaweed) peat. As a whole, it is extremely mineral. Single Cask no. 302465 – Hogshead. Exclusive to LMDW.

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : vibrant gold.
  • Nose : clear, elegant. Smoked salmon, soot, candied lemon, almond milk and even hail... these are the first protagonists to enter into action, right from the first nosing. Allowed to breathe, it develops floral (tulip, peony) and aquatic (reed, water lily) notes. Next, extremely subtle fragrances of hollyhock and ash land on the surface of the aromatic palette.
  • Palate : dense, stately. A liquorice peat seizes the taste buds without any opposition. Gradually it moves closer to malted barley. On the mid-palate, lime and Guérande salt answer the call. These are accompanied by grey peppercorn, some liquorice stick and a layer of vanilla. The end of the palate is resolutely marine and luscious, almost syrupy (verveine du Velay).
  • Overall : distinguished, well-balanced. The peat has become more oily and at the same time more salty (seaweed, kelp). A sea breeze brings with its curls of ashy smoke. The very mineral (schist, basalt) retronasal olfaction is also lush and lemony. The empty glass allows us a glimpse of peat (ointment, camphor).
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

Merchant

Artist, Lands of Scotland, Malt Pedigree, Tartan, The Ten, Very Cloudy... all of these whisky ranges – composed of single malts and single grains – have one thing in common: they were all created by the team at La Maison du Whisky. They are the fruits of many decades of close collaboration with some of the most prestigious bottlers in Scotland. For some years the French importer and exclusive distributor of the classic ranges of well-known spirits producers, La Maison du Whisky was soon granted the very rare privilege of being able to complement these ranges with their own, bringing together two sets of expertise, two reputations and two complementary histories under one, single label.

The line

Baptised ‘Artist’, this new range makes no bones about proclaiming its identity. Cosmopolitan and contemporary, it draws its inspiration from the style that gave the Italian bottlings of the 60s and 70s their cult following. From the choice of whiskies (distillery, ageing process, age, strength, bottling procedure) to the design of the bottle and choice of label, every detail has been carefully considered. This range offers a fine presentation of both the whiskies and the artist whose works have been selected for the back labels.
