Caol Ila 12 year old

Caol Ila 12 year oldFresh, sweetly fruity and smooth-bodied, Caol Ila 12 year old is as rounded and clear as the shapes of the still-room, glimpsed by hazy shafts of sunlight glancing through the morning cloud.

Each expression of Caol Ila (say ‘Cull Ec-la’) reflects a special quality of the light at this remote Islay distillery, where sublime malt whiskies have been made for over a hundred and sixty years. Together they picture a day in its secret cove on the Sound of Islay. The smoothness and fine balance of Caol Ila 12 year old suggest the rounded shapes of the stills, softly outlined in a cloudy day’s first glimpse of the sun. Fresh and fruity, it is a classic expression of the Caol Ila character, first seen in 1846. Here are those spicy sea-air aromas and sweet smoky-dry flavours, elegantly expressed with a clarity and balance that come from perfect maturation.
