Description

Caol Ila is derived from Gaelic Caol Ìle for "Sound of Islay" (lit. "Islay Strait") in reference to the distillery's location overlooking the strait between Islay and Jura. It was founded in 1846 by Hector Henderson. Caol Ila is one of the lighter Islay whiskies, pale in colour, with peaty, floral and peppery notes. In addition to being sold as a single malt, it is used heavily (around 95% of their production) in blends such as Johnnie Walker and Black Bottle.On the nose is oceanic, fresh ans salty, with a peated barley, gently smoked style. On the palate is initlally sweet and mellow, building to damp ash, tar and soot. The finish is more phenols late, and still showing smoke, beach and chimneys.
