Caol Ila 12yr old
Caol Ila is the biggest distillery on Islay. It was demolished in 1972 and then rebuilt. The distillery’s 12 year old is relatively light coloured and shows characteristics of pepper, and peat smoke, as well as toffee and vanilla from oak ageing – there is a floral characteristic as well. The malt is medium-bodied with a good intensity of flavour. Consistently good.
