The Caol Ila distillery is situated on the north-east coast of Islay, has has been producing spectacular single malt Scotch whisky since 1846! A very well-loved distillery, producing stunning peated expressions, and in recent years have been experimenting with unpeated malt too. If you don’t like deers, you probably shouldn’t look at the label of our Caol Ila bottling, because it’s got bloomin’ loads of them on it, charging across from the Isle of Jura to Caol Ila with Prince Vultan leading the proceedings. Scary stuff.
Nose: Olive oil, heathlands; gorse and heather. Stable straw, coal dust infused sugar syrup (why?)
Palate: Oily, with a juicyfruit chewing gum sweetness.
Finish: A peppery sweetness while an an oily smokiness lingers
