Caol Ila 30 Years Old
 55.1%    |    70cl

A rare limited release of extra-mature Caol Ila – the oldest Caol Ila ever released by the original distillers, and with bags of character. Complex, mature and well structured, it combines a palate and finish rich in mature peat smoke with elegantly drying, herbal accents to create a really pungent, moreish malt.

Caol Ila 30 Year Old On The Flavour Map
Taste the character and craft in every drop.

Region

From the classic Isle of Islay distillery.

Appearance

Clear golden honey. Good beading.

Nose

Slightly compressed at first then, once the aroma settles, the smoke is first sweet, then distant and vegetal. Above this float lighter notes of fresh garden mint and softly acetic red berries.

Body

Medium to full-bodied, dense.

Palate

A first vegetal note is soon overwhelmed by the smokiest of bonfires, allied to a fresh-scrubbed cleanliness, with redcurrant tartness supplying a bitter twist.

Finish

Long and dry, with an appetising bittersweet character that mixes aromatic herbs and liquorice with maritime notes and pungent peat-smoke.
