Caol Ila


Whisky, Islay


Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Caol Ila, 17 Year Old, Islay, Special Releases 2015, NV

Tasting Note:

Created at Islay distillery Coal Ila, this is the tenth unpeated release from the brand. Distilled in 1997, this is also the oldest Coal Ila released in Diageo’s Special Reserve range yet. The first of these releases will come from American oak ex-Bourbon casks. A little less ‘full on’ than previous expression, it still has all its fruity sharpness, hints of smoke and the sea, grainy cereals and bittersweet tannins, and becomes soft, harmonious and welcoming with water.
