CAOL ILA Distillers Edition 43%
Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Islay, 70cl, Ref: 14513
Caol Ila is the Gaelic name for the ‘Sound of Islay’, the narrow strait that separates Islay from its neighbour Jura in one of the wildest and most beautiful regions on Scotland’s west coast. This distillery produces characteristically expressive malt, easily recognised by its notes of peat smoke, fruit, olive oil and maritime freshness. The moscatel barrels selected for the second maturation give this Caol Ila expression an additional layer of complexity.

- Appearance : bright gold.
- Nose : moscatel first becomes apparent with a pleasant ripe exotic fruit sweetness. It initially tempers the whisky’s phenolic, peaty, camphor-like character. However pepper, clove and ash inevitably power through.
- Palate : faithful to the nose, switching between pineapple, Williams pear, peat and earth. Opens up to candied lemon and gentian root. Notes of freshly peated barley and tobacco provide a pleasant aromatic lift.
- Overall : long, dense and particularly smoky. Aniseed leads up to an intensely floral .
- 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
