Caol Ila background

Caol Ila is the silent assassin of Islay; there is peat in this whisky, but it sneaks up on you. With less prominent smoke than some of its Islay neighbours, everything about Caol Ila whisky is different. From it’s mashing, fermentation regime, stills and the cut points; it’s unique. Its often the quiet ones who surprise us the most.

This single malt whisky is the perfect example of that. It captures both the coastal and land elements of Islay, with balanced notes to take your mind straight to this charismatic island.  A lovely whisky, and a must try.
