CAOL ILA 2011 Very Cloudy S.V 40%
Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Islay, 70cl, Ref: 56126
Founded in 1846, Caol Ila is an outstanding distillery on the island of Islay. This young version will delight lovers of whiskies from these peaty, iodine rich islands. Lightly influenced by its ageing in bourbon barrels, this Caol Ila has a salty, smoky profile, backed by notes of coal, camphor and salted lemons. Like the Un-Chillfiltered Collection, the whiskies in the Very Cloudy range are bottled in small batches of two to five casks. Reduced to 40% without either chill filtering or colouring, they have a rich, intensely aromatic character and slightly cloudy appearance.
Fumé, salin. Citrons confits au sel, fleurs blanches, feu de bois, réglisse.

- 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
Although the independent bottler Signatory Vintage cannot claim to be one of the oldest in Scotland, it has managed to build up an extremely solid reputation amongst the great malt connoisseurs. The creator of the famous range The Prestonfield and many other well-known ranges, it is best known for its un-chillfiltered and cask strength bottlings that offer amateurs the chance to enjoy their whisky in its most natural form. It was also one of the first independent bottlers to acquire a distillery and now offers a growing number of expressions of one of the most artisan single malts available.
The lineTout comme The Un-Chillfiltered Collection, les whiskies de la gamme Very Cloudy sont embouteillés à partir de petits lots de deux à cinq fûts. Réduits à 40% sans filtration à froid ni coloration, ils possèdent un profil riche, très aromatique et présentent un aspect légèrement trouble. Pour une expérience gustative des plus authentique, ils peuvent se déguster à température ambiante ou légèrement rafraîchis pour augmenter ce côté huileux. La gamme Very Cloudy est une exclusivité La Maison du Whisky.
