Each expression of Caol ila reflects a special quality of the light of this remote Islay distillery: together, they picture a day in its secret cove on the Sound of Islay. A most unusual and interesting unpeated Islay single malt, this natural cask strength Caol ila 17 year old comes from ex-bourbon American oak barrels and unusually for this Islay distillery - unpeated. Made just once a year , it is prized by blenders: although an Islay malt, they call it Highland 'style'.
Nose - Reserved and fruity, then sweet and dense, with a balancing freshness.
Palate - Warming, smooth and sweet with a distinct saltiness and herbal dryness.
Finish - Long and warming.
