Caol Ila is pronounced "Cull Eela". It's the Gaelic name for the Sound of Islay, which separates the island from Jura. For some, the distillery's pronunciation is as remote as its location, sitting as it does on the rugged eastern coast, where it has remained hidden from view since 1846. However you say it, the fine, smoky whisky produced by generations of islanders is worth exploring.
This package is part of the Caol Ila Range, a no-nonsense selection of two true classics, Caol Ila 18 and Caol Ila 12.
Extra ageing has calmed the impact of the phenols, with the peat arriving on the palate late, and tempered by smooth oak. A very mellow, mature Islay malt.
Caol Ila 12 Year Old is of medium weight, but still packing plenty of potent phenols, this is a refined, powerful dram with a compensating oiliness. A balanced, peaty beauty..
