The prestigious Caol Ila 12 Year Old is a delicate single malt expression made with utmost precision. On first approach, this Scotch Whisky is a fresh, sweet, fruity and smooth-bodied demeanour, making an enjoyable spirit to have, at any occasion. The clean, appetizing nose shows subtle citrus fruit with just a puff of smoke with a firm and smooth fragrant smokiness and a sweet-smoky, lingering finish.
About Caol Ila:
In 1846, Glasgow distillery owner Hector Henderson picked a little bay on the Sound of Islay for his distillery site. He named it for the sound itself, using the Gaelic Caol Ila, and it was across this sound the little puffer ships made their round trips to the mainland – slowly helping to establish the distillery as the biggest on Islay. They are known for their refined and premium whiskeys, and have won international acclaim with a Double Gold Medal at the San Francico World Spirits Competition 2016 and a Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirit Awards 2015.
