Distilled: 9.10.2003 Bottled: 9.21.2016 Hogshead Cask# 302467 270 Bottles. 46% ABV
The nose shows a present but balanced nose of smoke, peat, jasmine, light iodine and a dry honeycomb and white peach. The palate is light with some oak, clean burning smoke, a touch of yellow apple and clean cereal grain on the finish. A clean Islay pleasantly complicated by spice and iodine. D&M Tasting Notes
Caol Ila today is known within the tourist trade as the Hidden Jewel of Islay. The distillery is located in a quiet cove near Port Askaig. Many consider this locality on the eastern shore of Islay to be the wildest and most picturesque of the island. Like Bunnahabhain and Bruichladdich (it’s two closest neighbors), the construction of Caol Ila created the community that surrounds them. Without these distilleries it is likely that there would have been little human presence in these areas of Islay at all.
