Description

One of the most popular malts in the Connoisseur's Choice range is Caol IIa, enjoyed for its Islay character. It is a lively whisky, peaty and full in flavour, without being as intense as its more famous counterparts. Its availability is limited, and with a name that is difficult to pronounce, Caol Ila has remained an almost secret Islay malt. The name - pronounced 'culleela'is gaelic for 'Sound of Islay'. The distillery is appropriately hidden in a cove near Port Askaig, overlooking the Sound of Islay, across which the ferry chugs to the nearby island of Jura.

This limited edition bottling (1 of 800) has been finished in casks which previous held Hermitage wine from the Rhone valley fro 30 months. This imparts rich, fruity overtones-blackberries and cherries combined with earhy smokiness of the whisky
