Description

Islay’s largest distillery remains one of its lesser known.  Only 5% of its considerable spirit production is bottled as a single malt, the rest providing the peaty backbone of big-selling blends such as Johnnie Walker and Black Bottle.  By Islay standards, it is relatively light and fresh, with a distinctive oily mouthfeel and honey-like lemony sweetness to complement its smoke.

Caol Ila distilled in 1977 and bottled in the 1980's by Gordon & MacPhail for their Connoisseurs Choice range.

N.B. - Please note the condition of the labels and packaging and also the fill levels of any bottle before bidding.
