About Caol Ila 2003 10 Year Old Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (G&M Bottling)

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.

Caol Ila 10 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whiskey (G&M Bottling) was distilled in 2003 and matured for 10 years in traditional oak casks before being bottled at cask strength.

As a result, the whisky has an aroma of cured meat, saltines and tropical fruits. The aroma gives way to notes of red apples, peat and milk chocolate on the palate, and leads to a finish with touches of peanut butter, roasted nuts and toasted bread.

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.
