25 year old malt from Islay’s most prolific distillery – Caol Ila. Sweet Smooth, and very ‘sherbet-lemony’. Only a hint of Smoke, and just superb. Caol Ila is situated on the north eastern shores of the island, with magnificent views across the Sound to the spectacular Paps of Jura. Despite being the largest distillery on Islay bottlings of Caol Ila as a single malt are not always easy to find. It nearly all ends up in blends. Frequently passed over, it presents a gentler, more feminine and food friendly expression of Islay that Ardbeg lovers should get to know.

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

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