Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Special Releases 2018. The 2018 bottling was matured in refill and rejuvenated American-oak hogsheads and ex-bodega European oak butts, which give a balance of elegant vanilla and orchard fruit, and richer, sherry oak flavour.
Deep gold: mild nose, with the fruity sharpness of green apples and orange zest. Dense, firm and mild at first with a sweet, minty-salty taste, then a freezing heat and a long and warming 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.
Nestled in a hidden cove near Port Askaig, the Caol Ila (pronounced “Cull Eela”) distillery sent its whisky to market by sea for over a hundred years.
