Caol Ila lies in hidden near Port Askaig, and has been affectionately named the hidden malt. Caol Ila (Gaelic for Sound of Islay), produces a full bodied smoky malt conjuring up images of traditional peat cutting and fishing industries of days gone by.

Coal Ila 12 Year Old
Fresh, sweetly fruity and smooth bodied, a classic expression of the Caol Ila is as rounded and clear as the shapes of the pot stills Spicy sea-air aromas, light fragrant smokiness and sweet smoky-dry flavours with the lingering, charred-dry finish of what makes Caol Ila the most appetising Islay's malt.
