Caol Ila
Benchmark Summer 2018

The Caol Ila Distillery is a whisky powerhouse, producing the largest amount of single malt on Islay, with the majority of its spirit reserved for the Johnnie Walker blends. This fine Islay single malt, displaying youth and vibrancy, is a peat-lover’s dream; we have balanced this boisterous spirit with a French red wine barrique from St. Emilion. After little over 5 years in an ex-bourbon cask, our team selected a wine barrique from a Grand Cru Classé producer in Bordeaux, to build extra character on this intense Islay malt. Enjoy!

Nose: summer fruits, sweet ash, peat
Palate: warm honeyed peat, dried fruit, salt
Finish: sweet and earthy, gentle embers
