Description of Caol Ila Moch

Caol Ila Moch

TASTING NOTES:

  • View: Caol Ila Moch has a pale golden color with good viscosity.
  • Nose: The nose is clean and fresh and salty wet sand after the tide has gone down.
  • Mouth: The palate is sweet and salty, good balance of acidity and fresh as the sea breeze. With added water becomes softer, sweeter, more sea and a nice texture. Medium bodied, elegant and soft. Final fairly short, dry and warm with a little bitterness. Lingering smoky aftertaste.

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.

Your rating for Caol Ila Moch:Rate Caol Ila Moch:

4 /5

- Soft, smooth, clean and fresh.
- Caol Ila Moch (in Gaelic 'Dawn') evokes the dawn of a new day, slowly prising Caol Ila from its slumbers and picking out the shoreline of its little wooded bay.
