    Nose: You get that peat to start, interwoven with orange, lime and malt, and it’s followed by vanilla, oak, bay leaves and green tea.
    Palate: Sweet malt, lime and peat gets you first and it’s reinforced by the faintest hint of vanilla stirring bay leaves, green tea in orange juice.
    Finish: The malt, lime, peat all carry through into a long finish with green tea and vanilla lingering.  
      Coal 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 Coal Ila whisky is different.  From it’s mashing, fermentation regime, stills and the cut points; it’s unique.  The quiet ones often surprise us the most.  This scotch is full of surprises.
