The Distillers Edition of this golden Caol Ila is brilliant, clean and refined and has a deep, sweet and smoky flavour profile that suggests the intense, saturated colours of late afternoon sunshine after a storm has passed.
Each expression of Caol Ila (say 'Cull Ee-la) reflects a special quality of the light at this remote Islay distillery. Together they picture a day in its secret cove on the sound of Italy. Brilliant, clean and finely balanced, this special Caol Ila has all the clarity and sunshine flooding the landscape with colour after a storm. Richer, more intense and more layered than regular expressions, it yet remains true to the Caol Ila character first seen in 1846. Here are those pure sea-air aromas and sweet smoky-dry flavours, expressed with a complex, rich spiciness that surprises and delights. Each bottle carries a release number, which designates the selected casks especially chosen for double maturation.
