Bronze Medal Milano Whisky Festival 2012
Every year we bottle a young and clean Islay malt, because we love fresh and powerful peat smoke. Yes, sometimes what the world needs is just a honest, uncomplicated peat monster, all intensity and character! Our annual Limited Editions of Caol Ila so far have always been loved by connoisseurs: very smoky, clean, with a great balance between a drier and more lemony character and a moderate malt sweetness which doesn’t mask the peat. For this 20th Anniversary Edition, we chose to give it a short finishing in refill sherry casks: not long enough for the wine to be noticed, but somehow adding an extra layer of body and richness to the lovely Caol Ila. Islay at its boldest best, no compromises!
