Caol Ila whisky is different from its Islay neighbours. The smoke is less prominent, for a start. But it's more than that. It's mashing. fermentation regime, stills and the cut points are unique. Caol Ila produces a fruity malt that even people who don't like peat still like. Our Malt Chaser was introduced to peaty whiskies by a well-aged Caol Ila.
This particular cask comes from stock of Caol Ila hogsheads that were-racked into first-fill bourbon casks over 3 years ago. The whisky was cut to 53% alcohol by volume, adding to the flavour and body. This Caol Ila is a must-try, for peat lovers and haters alike.
