Because isn't that the whole point?
Melt into the rich flavor of Caol Ila 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky. With a subdued, citric fruitiness and a sweet start, our whisky ends with a lengthy, slightly sour finish. Consider pairing our 86 proof whisky with the provincial olive dish, tapenade, which helps bring out Caol Ila's peaty and salty notes, while the mix of capers and herbs accentuates the citrus flavors. Perfect on its own or mixed in a cocktail, our award-winning whisky is best enjoyed when served neat in a rocks glass, adding ice or a splash of water for taste. Caol Ila is pronounced “Cull Eela”. For more than 100 years, small coal-fired “puffers” like the SS Pibroch brought barley, coal and empty casks to the distillery, returning her whisky to the mainland through the Sound of Islay. Today, Caol Ila’s secret bay is only known to true Islay devotees. 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. Please drink responsibly.View all products by Caol Ila
The Islay region of Scotland is famous for its big, peaty Scotch whiskies. And whether you love that peat flavor, hate it, or you're just getting into it, there's one Scotch that you are guaranteed to love: Caol Ila 12 Year Old.
Pronounced “Cull Eela," which means “the sound of Islay" in Gaelic, the whisky is a well balanced, every day dram. Caol Ila 12 Year Old has refined peat notes accentuated by a lemon, herbal and almond aroma. Each sip is on the lighter side despite the smokiness, and leaves you with a long, peppery, slightly tart taste.
In other words, the type of flavors that make you look at your glass and immediately understand why the whisky won Best Single Malt Scotch 12 Years at the International Whisky Competition as well as gold medals from The Scotch Whisky Masters and the International Spirits Challenge.
The distillery was founded in 1846 in a hidden cove on the stark cliff of the eastern shores of Islay. Locally malted barley and spring water from the Loch Nam Ban add to the local flavors. It's truly a Scotch that's powerful enough to add into Scotch-forward cocktails and delicate enough to drink neat.
