Our eighth bottling from Caol Ila is a marriage of
five bourbon barrels from the mid-2000s. Caol Ila
is renowned for its light, flinty style, which adds
elegance to the layers of smoke and strong coastal
notes that are its trademark.
Smoky buttery popcorn.
Classic coastal sea spray with an undercurrent of caramel and buttered popcorn. A background note of aniseed marries nicely with lime oil and thyme.
The texture is creamy and full with flavours of baked lemon and rock salt. The distillery’s flinty edge is on show and balances nicely with the flavour of delicate custard.
Juicy and long, with lemon oil and cloves coming through.
