Caol Ila Distillery
Alcohol Content (%)
Taste: Fresh, sweetly fruity and smooth, with light smoke. Sweet floral fragrances with a smooth body, balanced taste, and a sweet-smoky, lingering finish. Nose: A little water raises almond oil and old fashioned oilskins, still a fresh fruitiness, a trace of olive oil, and after a while potpourri or scented hand-soap. Palate: Smooth, pleasant mouth-feel, with water light acidity, some salt and still the sweeter notes. A complex balance of primary tastes.
CAOL ILA DISTILLERY
Caol Ila is pronounced "Cull Eela". It's the Gaelic name for the Sound of Islay, which separates the island from Jura. For some, the distillery's pronunciation is as remote as its location, sitting as it does on the rugged eastern coast, where it has remained hidden from view since 1846. However you say it, the fine, smoky whisky produced by generations of islanders is worth exploring. The distinctive Islay smokiness makes Caol Ila whisky a reference point for connoisseurs of Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky the world over. Sitting amongst the Inner Hebridean Scottish Isles, Islay's rugged coast produces single malt whiskies with strong peaty aromas. Unmistakably powerful, bursting with flavour, Caol Ila Scotch perfectly matches the spectacular scenery of its home. It's dry, sea air aromas and pleasing smoky-smoothness evokes a certain sense of place for the drinker - whether you've visited this magical island or not. For more than 100 years small coal-fired "puffers" like the SS Pibroch brought barley, coal and empty casks to the distillery, returning her whisky to the mainland through the Sound of Islay. Today, Caol Ila's secret bay is only known to true Islay devotees. The barley used here is still malted locally at Port Ellen and pure spring water still rises from limestone in nearby Loch nam Ban, then falls to the sea at Caol Ila in a clear crystal stream, just as it always has.
