  • Color: Caol Ila Distillers Edition 2001 is pale gold.
  • Smell: The nose, a little salt and fruit sweetened with a dance of smoke floating around.
  • Taste: The palate starts with sweet muscatel flavor, graduating in candied, smoky ash and ending with fruit and a hint of iodine. Very nice. Final half-length, with the smoke and the ever present iodine.

DETAILS OF DEVELOPMENT: The whiskey was distilled and matured in oak barrels and then finished in Moscatel casks and bottled.

The Producer

Caol Ila Distillery

Caol Ila Distillery

Caol Ila is derived from Gaelic Caol Ìle for "Sound of Islay" (lit. "Islay Strait") in reference to the distillery's location overlooking the strait between Islay and Jura. It was founded in 1846 by Hector Henderson. The distillery did not fare well, and changed hands in 1854 when Norman Buchanan, owner of the Isle of Jura Distillery, took over. In 1863 the business was acquired by Bulloch Lade & Co, of Glasgow, traders in whisky stocks. According to the 1871 census, Duncan Johnston was the Distillery Manager at the time. Duncan was the nephew of John Johnston of Lagavulin and cousin to the Laphroaig Johnstons and so the family were involved with yet another distillery on the island. By the 1880s over 147,000 gallons of whisky were produced there each year.
