Caol Ila

Category: Spirits

Caol Ila is a 12 years old single malt scotch whisky produced by Caol Ila’s distillery which is the largest of the eight distilleries scattered across the Isle of Islay in the west of Scotland. The name “Caol Ila” actually means “Sound of Islay” in Gaelic, and was named after the distillery’s close proximity to Jura. It is one of the lighter Islay whiskies, lighter in colour than its powerful neighbours, but with a distinctive floral and peppery notes which complement the traditional Islay peaty flavour. Its recent official bottlings, which are particularly expressive, have an intense smoky and peaty character with a good balance of saltiness and sweetness.
