Caol Ila 25 Years Old On The Flavour Map
Taste the character and craft in every drop.

Smoky Rich Delicate Light

Region

Islay.

Appearance

Light gold.

Nose

Pleasantly salty-sweet, with traces of smoke, like a charred, honey-glazed smoked ham with tinned peaches. Becomes sweeter and slightly waxy when water is added, with a pleasing citric acidity, light saltiness and a growing fragrant smokiness.

Body

Medium, oily and smooth.

Palate

Very smoky start with sweet grasses behind. Very sweet in the centre, with more notes of that honey-glazed ham. Broad and deep, retaining its initial freshness.

Finish

Dries to a very long finish. That charred salty-sweetness lingers, still calling to mind honeyed ham.
