Caol Ila, Distillers Edition (700ml)

Sold out

Caol Ila Distillery,

Distillers Edition

43% ABV


The combined effect of the Moscatel cask and European oak can work particularly well with peated Islay spirit - so long as it's not overdone.

Six months finishing in the sweet Moscatel dessert wine casks has resulted in a decidedly different Caol Ila.

A complex and richly flavoured whisky that maintains a fine sweet/dry balance.


Colour: Deep gold

Tasting notes: 


Creamy, soft, sweet peat - think smokey vanilla wafer. Second pass suggests fennel / herbal tea over citrus lozenge.


Oily, semi-sweet, smokey fruit'n'nut-chocolate delivery, rounded off with sufficient zest and spice to counter the moscatel input. Liquorice bullets and lanolin in the aftertaste.

A seductive after-dinner Caol Ila to melt into dark chocolate or blue vein cheese
