- ABV 43%
Caol Ila(Gaelic for 'the Sound of Islay') 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 (in terms of production anyway) 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.
Other reviews... Caol Ila 25-year-old follows limited editions (6,000 bottles) at the same age, released as part of the Classic Malt Selections Special Releases series in 2004 and 2005. The nose is fresh and fruity, with sticking plasters, brine, bonfire smoke and a hint of new leather. Relatively sweet on the palate, with more fruit notes, plus wood smoke, pepper and some oak. The finish dries steadily, with mild smokiness (3.5 Stars)- Gavin D. Smith, Tom Cannavan - www.whisky-pages.com)
This is to be a permanent addition to the core Caol Ila range, but it will raise a few eyebrows, completely ignoring the current peat battle between Ardbeg and Bruichladdich and heading off into an altogether more refined and delicate direction. This is a dignified and complex malt, which doesn’t give everything up immediately. There’s soft pear and guava on the nose, and the trademark oiliness and distinctive peat are there, but there’s a buttery quality, too, as well as some brine and spice, apple pip, and traces of aniseed. You get a sense of its age late on, with some oaky tannins and sharper spice, but overall this is an unhurried, complex, and sweet whisky with just enough peat to keep it honest. Very impressive. 88 points - www.maltadvocate.com (Vol. 19, #3)
