25 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky 700ml
Christmas on the isle of Islay is a wintery snow globe of rich tradition, cold snowy seas, and bone chilling winds soaked in the heavy scent of sea salt waves. Caol Ila 25 year old single malt scotch encapsulates this brisk and sea salt breath of freshness perfectly from glass to blanketing taste. The aroma opens in a bough of warmly baked Christmas cakes dipped in briny sea foam, bites of dried fruits, and soft tones of oak. The flavor is sweetly luscious with more fruits, holiday spices, and layers of tannins and sea salt cinnamon spices.

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.

Essentially a marginally progressively peaty Lagavulin 16. It has a lighter mouthfeel also.

Phenomenal scotch great. Smoky yet its mellowed enough where it's a pleasant expansion and not the point of convergence. Pleasant measure of pleasantness and an extraordinary completion that waits of peat.

I've been maintaining a strategic distance from this whisky for some time. I'm enamored with Caol Ila and was concerned this wouldn't satisfy my hopes. I'm glad to state it despite everything amazed me. The nose has wet peat malt vinegar shoe clean and dried heather. There's a ton occurring on the sense of taste. The surface is extremely delicious. Forceful wood flavors out of the entryway dry dull malt waxy organic product powdered white chocolate and an unobtrusive smoke and petroleum finish. While this is amusing to burrow through it appears to be all the more an outing to whisky the scholarly community. Fortunately including a couple of drops of water changes the entirety of that. The sense of taste becomes unadulterated silk and brilliant succulent natural product rises up out of the malty sense of taste. You penance some unpredictability yet it is a more than ideal trade. All around done Caol Ila.

Day 17. Caol Ila 25. This is most likely the most established whisky I have attempted up until now. I own a jug of the 12 and attempted the 18 of every a bar. In any case by god I need to get a jug of the 25. The genuine kicker is this is just 10 bucks more than the Kilchoman Port....and the complexity between those two....like a fishing pontoon versus the Yamato. The nose is fragile peat some salt and vanilla and an extremely clear particular note of chocolate raspberries. I don't think I had that anyplace else previously and I'm enamored with it. The taste is likewise astonishing. A delicate yet still present peat layer some salty vanilla fudge a dash of nectar pleasantness some home grown notes that I'd most likely arrange as basil and some pekan nuts. Extremely tasty. Furthermore it continues changing with each taste. There is a long somewhat unpleasant woody delayed flavor impression with some smoke and nuttyness. I think this has quite recently surpassed the Hibiki 17 and the Good country Park 18 as my preferred whisky up until this point. I'm in paradise. Caol Ila is very underestimated as I would see it. The costs for these are simply incredibly low and they are so justified despite all the trouble.
