    DESCRIPTION

    Part of the Diageo Special Releases Collection 2014.


    A limited edition, natural cask strength single malt from Caol Ila, an active Isle of Islay distillery, this is the ninth limited release of unpeated Caol Ila. From a batch made once a year, from unpeated malt, for blending in the “Highland Style”.


    Distilled in 1998 and matured in ex-bourbon first fill American Oak casks.


    Pale gold; considerable nose-prickle, and a maritime top note – a fresh sea breeze, with scents of machair flowers. Behind this is a very light cereal note (Swedish crisp-bread, becoming vanilla sponge) and a hint of lemon. A smooth and creamy texture and a surprisingly sweet taste, with light saltiness and chilli pepper. Lively clean and warming, with traces of dark chocolate and juniper in the aftertaste.

    KNOWLEDGE BAR
    The Caol Ila Distillery was established in 1846 on the coast near Port Askaig on the island of Islay, by Hector Henderson. Caol Ila means "Sound of Islay" in Gaelic. A waterfall supplied power for barley hoists and pressure for fire hydrants. Until the late 1950s Caol Ila brought barley and sent its casks to market from Islay's remote shores on M.V. Pibroch, a traditional island coaster or "Puffer" boat.
