Caol Ila Perfect Old Fashioned

The often mispronounced (it’s ‘Cull-Eel-ah) but never underestimated Caol Ila is a formidable giant of Scotch that harnesses the power and charm of Islay. Situated on the shores of the Sound to draw water from Loch Nam Ban, Caol Ila has a signature smoky charisma and is often regarded as the perfect entry point to peaty whiskies. Flavour notes: Caol Ila 12yo - clean, fresh, sweetly fruity, character and lightly fragrant smokiness.
