18 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky 700ml
A limited edition single malt scotch whisky whose mystique is half of the allure, Caol Ila's 18 year old release has gained cult-status since the whisky boom and is today one of the most sought-after bottlings to come out of Islay. The 18 year weighs in at 43% ABV, Caol Ila's standard proof of 86. Aged gracefully for almost 2 decades, the time in the barrel plays a part in mellowing the whisky's smoke and peat, while a balance of oak and woody notes can be found alongside herbal vanilla undertones.

About the brand
Caol Ila is derived from Gaelic Caol Ìle for "Sound of Islay" (lit. "Islay Strait") in reference to the distillery's location overlooking the strait between Islay and Jura. It was founded in 1846 by Hector Henderson. The distillery did not fare well, and changed hands in 1854 when Norman Buchanan, owner of the Isle of Jura Distillery, took over. In 1863 the business was acquired by Bulloch Lade & Co, of Glasgow, traders in whisky stocks. According to the 1871 census, Duncan Johnston was the Distillery Manager at the time. Duncan was the nephew of John Johnston of Lagavulin and cousin to the Laphroaig Johnstons and so the family were involved with yet another distillery on the island. By the 1880s over 147,000 imperial gallons (670,000 L) of whisky were produced there each year. In 1920 Bulloch Lade went into voluntary liquidation, and a consortium of businessmen formed the Caol Ila Distillery Company Ltd. In 1927 the Distillers Company acquired a controlling interest in Caol Ila, and in 1930 Scottish Malt Distillers Ltd obtained ownership of all the shares. The distillery closed during World War II, from 1942 to 1945, because of wartime restrictions on the supply of barley to distillers. From then, production continued until 1972, when the entire structure of the distillery was demolished. A larger distillery was then built, designed by George Leslie Darge in the same architectural style as many of his others with his trademark glazed curtain walls to the still houses, and production resumed in 1974. The company eventually became part of Diageo.

Subsequent to perusing @LeeEvolved s survey of this I basically needed to open up the example he charitably sent me. I should end this survey with essentially three words: Gracious. My. God. Be that as it may Ill compose more. Light sea shore campfire on the button; trailed by consumed wood saltiness and burned lemons. I absolutely concur with Lee‚- superior to HP 18 or Talisker 18. Why the damnation do we waste time with other poop bourbon when a couple of the works of art for example this Ardbeg 10 Springbank 10 and Lagavulin 16 do the trick ? Very simply‚"- its astounding and at the cost of <$100 an easy decision must purchase. A debt of gratitude is in order for this Lee!"

An astounding portrayal of a more established ' peated scotch at its prime. 18 years is by all accounts the ideal age for Caol Ila . This is straight up there with the substantial hitters estimated a lot higher. Nose: Peat mellow bandaid Sense of taste: Even - peat therapeutic Completion: :Long smooth and wonderfully waits and waits and waits WOW"
