Caol Ila Scotch Single Malt 12 Years Old

Caol Ila Scotch Single Malt 12 Years Old 750ML        
Sku: 15982

Caol IIa, is a lively whisky, peaty and full in flavour, without being as intense as its more famous counterparts. Its availability is limited, and with a name that is difficult to pronounce, Caol Ila has remained an almost secret Islay malt. The name - pronounced ’culleela’ is gaelic for ’Sound of Islay’. The distillery is appropriately hidden in a cove near Port Askaig, overlooking the Sound of Islay, across which the ferry chugs to the nearby island of Jura.

Tasting notes
This delicious and well-made single malt is sweet with light flavored smokiness. Balanced smoke and salt, fresh light style with a lingering charred-dry finish.

Funny to think how recently Caol Ila was an Islay giant that was kept pretty much under wraps by its owner. These days it has cemented its reputation as the island’s Mr. Consistent. This version shows its character the best, a nose that mixes seashore and grass with a distinct hint of smoked bacon. The peatiness isn’t dominant, but flows throughout the palate, scenting, lifting, and subtly changing the mix. A delicious oiliness makes it a great food whisky. (Summer 2012) Reviewed by: Dave Broom

The aromatics are incredibly complex and intense while being harmonious and gentle. Scents of grass, smoldering embers, bacon, nutmeg, and dried fruits. The palate offers a lovely, silky texture with incredible length and a pleasing viscosity and a deft
