The Islay Youngster.

The Caol Ila Distillery was founded in 1846 by Hector Handerson on the Isle of Islay, in a location overlooking the strait between Islay and Jura, hence the name which derived from Gaeliec Caol Ìle, meaning Sound of Islay or literary, Islay Strait. Over the years Caol Ila has changed owners numerious times, eventually it became part of Diageo.

Caol Ila Moch (dawn in Gaelic) is a no age statement single malt that is commonly thought to be about 8 years old. The Moch is part of a range of younger Whiskies we’re seeing appear on the market from established Scotch brands. Why? One simple reasons is to take care of business. Nevertheless, this does not mean that Caol Ila Moch is a bad Whisky. On the contrary, it’s a great Scotch - simple yet challenging in its own right.

First-class Whisky is taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Colour
Gold straw.

Smell / Nose / Aroma
Clean and very smoky/briny. Very pure, with light citrus and green fruits. Water puts the flames out leaving ashes, wet grass, cowpats and burnt sticks.

Flavour / Taste / Palate
Initial huge punch of honey sweetness followed by tons of smoke. Malted barley, bark and fresh herbs, iodine, liquorice, caramel, sweet chilli and black pepper spice to it, in keeping with its young age.

 
Finish
Clean, fresh.
