Caol Ila 25YO Islay Single Malt 700ml

Caol Ila is hidden in a quiet cove near Port Askaig. Many consider this locality to be the wildest and most picturesque of the island. Situated on Loch Nam Ban, the site is ideal thanks to the abundant supply of good water. Caol Ila (Gaelic for 'the Sound of Islay') was built in 1846 by Hector Henderson - a Glasgow businessman with a keen interest in distilling. Like Bunnahabhain and Bruichladdich, the development of Caol Ila created along with it, a community of its own. Without these distilleries, it is likely that there would have been little sustained human interference in these areas at all.

 Tasting Notes

Nose: Complex nose of smoke, liquorice, vanilla and intense freshly-mown grass,.

Palate:  Rich and creamy texture with notes of toffee and caramel (as it seems is the distillery’s signature flavour profile), with leathery notes coming to the fore towards the end.

Finish: A long but subtle finish, with the leather and sweeter notes continuing from the palate.

 ABV: 43%
