What is it like to sniff and sip?
Our 8 year old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky 59.8% has the pedigree of a delightful traditional Islay Malt. It has a definite peaty note to taste, and of course that wonderful smoky hint at the finish. It is the smoky hint, that can be likened to burnt grass or smoked meats, that gives Caol Ila and many of the other Islay Malts, their distinctive identity. We have bottled this 8 year old deliberately at cask strength of 59.8% abv to let you enjoys its taste at full throttle. Despite its strength, it is surprisingly smooth to drink.
Anything else I should know?
We have stocked Caol Ila Single Malt Scotch Whisky since our opening day in July 2004 and the introduction of this Islay Blended Malt Scotch Whisky is only as a result of the tremendous popularity of Caol Ila leaving little available for us to purchase and bottle for you. A damn shame! However, this blend represents a fabulous and affordable alternative to an Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Please be aware that stock is limited and it will not hang around long. We are sure that this Malt will bring hours of post prandial enjoyment to all who try it. Do let us know what you think?
Any more interesting things?
Islay is the most beautiful Island off Scotland's West coast. It is a place where the wind blows freshly with strong sea air. If you like bucket and spade holidays with a hint of whisky book your trip now! Islay has 8 distilleries at the current count and more will undoubtedly follow soon. Caol lla is the Gaelic name for the Sound of Islay, which separates the island from Jura in one of the most remote and beautiful parts of Scotland's West Coast. The distillery sits on a wild and picturesque cove, near Port Askaig. The barley used here is still malted locally at Port Ellen and pure spring water still rises from limestone in nearby Loch nam Ban, then falls to the sea at Caol Ila in a clear crystal stream, just as it always has. Their offspring is a fine-ageing malt reserved in oak casks for up to eighteen years.
