/Caol Ila 10

Spirit Description

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.

Alcohol by Volume: 46%

Origin: Islay. Port Askaig.

Notes: Matured in first fill sherry butts.

Tasting Notes:
Sweet cured bacon with ripe banana and sweet vanilla aromas. The palate is peppery with green apple and pear, which combine with a lingering peat smoke edge.
