Caol Ila 12 year old, Single Malt Whisky, 20cl
The smoothness and fine balance of Caol Ila 12 years old suggests the rounded shape of the stills, softly outlined in a cloudy day's first glimpse of the sun. Fresh and fruity, it is a classic expression of the Caol Ila character, first seen in 1846. Available in a 20cl bottle.
Nose: Fresh, herbal. Rubbed peppermint leaves, stemmy, damp grass, smoky. Oily, cigar leaves, smoked ham, hickory. Lemon peels at the harbour.
Palate: Good body, oily, tar, elegant smoke. Hints of boiled sweets.
Finish: Long, peppery, spicy warmth, smoke.
