Fresh, herbal, with rubbed peppermint leaves, stemmy damp grass, and a smoky, oil and hickory nose make up this 12 year old bottling from the Caol Ila distillery on the isle of Islay, Scotland. The palate has a good body, and an elegant, smokey taste with hints of boiled sweets. It has a long, peppery finish that lingers with a spicy warmth and smoke. ABV 43View 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.
