Distilled 1991 - 16 years old
Medoc Finish - 46% Volume
Protected within the sound of Islay, close to Port Askaig, the principal port of the island, Caol Ila is the largest and most modern distillery on Islay. Caol Ila is the most widely used and sought after Islay malt for blenders. It is a key component for many blends such as Johnnie Walker. Caol Ila is certainly the most elegant, refined and well shaped single malt from Islay.
The original distillery was established by the Marquis of Stafford, Duke of Sutherland in 1819 to offer work for displaced crofters during the clearances and as an access market for his locally produced barley. Clynelish is a typical example of a coastal Highland malt from the North -East that resembles an island malt.
