Caol Ila 12yrs shows its character the best, a nose that mixes seashore and grass with a distinct hint of smoked bacon. The peatiness isn’t dominant, but flows throughout the palate, scenting, lifting and subtly changing the mix. A delicious oiliness makes Caol Ila 12yrs a great food whisky.
Nose: Intense and rich, with malted barley and gentle floral touches overcome by smoky notes.
Palate: Light and fresh, with toffee, vanilla and pear balanced by smoke and ashy touches.
Finish: Complex and long, with sweetness fading to leave dark and smoky flavours.
