IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

Caol Ila Scotch Single Malt 12 Years Old has a color of pale straw. A smell of citric fruitiness; a whiff of bath oil and dentist's mouthwash. A fresh and appetising nose, with little or no trace of smoke. A little water raises almond oil and old-fashioned oilskins; still a fresh fruitiness, a trace of olive oil, and after a while pot pourri or scented hand-soap. The taste drinks well at natural strength; sweet start; pleasant, light fragrant smokiness and a lengthy finish. Smooth, pleasant mouth-feel; with water light acidity, some salt and still the sweeter notes. A complex balance of primary tastes. A finishing taste of sweet smokiness in the lingering, slightly sour finish. Caol Ila is the Gaelic name for the Sound of Islay, which separates the island from Jura in one of the most remote and beautiful parts of Scotland's West Coast. The distillery is situated on the shores of the Sound, a spot originally chosen in 1846 partly because of the clean water from Loch Nam Ban, which still provides its main supply. And even today you can still watch the seals in the Sound from the still room. When you sip this tempting, easy-drinking malt, well, at first you’d know you were in Islay – but you might not know where. Well-known whisky writer, Michael Jackson, pinpoints the smooth, olive-like house style, calling Caol Ila™ ‘a wonderful aperitif’. Sniff the air over a glass and smoky, sea-fresh aromas recall an age, not so long ago, when fishing and cutting peat were the traditional occupations in these parts. Few men make a living cutting peat on the island today, but the old traditions live on in the skills of our distillery workers and in the ingredients they still use at Caol Ila.

The good stuff at a good price

I regularly buy single malts and appreciate a supplier that offers good service and competitive prices, delivered. Wine Chateau did it for me. The Caol Ika is a great whisky worthy of the tasting.

Caol Ila Scotch Single Malt 12 Year 0 750ml

This was purchased as a birthday gift for someone that recently visited Scotland. They were over the moon to be able to drink it again!
