CAOL ILA 10 ans 2011 Islay Selection S.V 46%
Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Islay, 70cl, Ref: 59488
A revered destination for peated whisky lovers, the Scottish island of Islay has become emblematic for its intense, smoky malts. If you can't make it to the island to celebrate this unique terroir, the Islay Selection range offers you the chance to discover or rediscover its character through a series of exclusive bottlings. With a breathtaking view of the famous "Paps" of the island of Jura, Caol Ila's impressive glass distillation room houses the largest stills on Islay. More smoky than peaty, mineral, undeniably marine and at the same time nicely fruity, the single malt it produces enjoys a very high reputation among enthusiasts. This bottling aged in hogshead casks and matured in second-fill new oak casks takes us to the open sea of this mythical island in a register marked by ashy, smoky and fruity notes.
Sourcing actor, importer and exclusive distributor of a portfolio of international brands, La Maison du Whisky is, since 60 years a reference for whisky and spirit lovers. Thanks to our close relationships with producers and independent bottlers, we have access to limited editions and unique products we bring to market exclusively.

- 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 Un-Chillfiltered Collection enables enthusiasts to enjoy the flavour of whisky that has not undergone chill filtering. Like cognac, armagnac and other fine spirits, most whiskies today are chill filtered. The whiskies in this range have an appearance and aromatic range that is much more faithful to the original products. Richer, oilier, more aromatic and distinctive, these whiskies are from single casks or are a blend of two or three casks at the most. They offer the ultimate authentic taste experience! Find out more
