About Caol Ila 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Once the barley has been malted and fermented, it is distilled through Caol Ila's copper-pot stills. "The stills were designed to replicate the original stills installed in the 19th century," says Billy Stitchell, the distillery manager (Stitchell began working at the distillery in 1974, and is the fourth generation of his family to be employed at the distillery — his father, both grandfathers and one great-grandfather all worked at Caol Ila). Unlike other distilleries on Islay (particularly Lagavulin), Caol Ila distills the wash in copper-pot stills that are less full in order to maximize copper contact. As a result, the whisky is less peaty and smoky than traditional Islay whiskies. After distillation, the whisky is aged for a minimum of twelve years in traditional oak casks.

Caol Ila 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky has an aroma of citrus, crushed almonds and olive oil. The body is firm yet supple, with touches of smoke, salty tang, honey, caramel and oak. The finish is smooth and slightly tart, and ends with a touch of peat.

Caol Ila 12 Year Old earned the Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, and earned a score of 90-95 points from Wine Enthusiast, which called it a "Best Buy." In addition, it was rated the "Best Single Malt Whisky Under 15 Years Old" at the International Wine and Spirits Competition, and was rated one of the ten best Scotch whiskies by The Independent.

About Scotch

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)


Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
