Caol Ila

Benchmark 2021

The Caol Ila Distillery is a whisky powerhouse, producing the largest amount of single malt on Islay. This fine Islay malt, displaying youth and vibrancy, is a peat-lover’s dream. We have tamed this boisterous spirit with three, freshly emptied barrels that previously matured deliciously sweet PX Sherry, from Bodegas Ximénez- Spínola, our partners in Jerez, Spain. To fully showcase this youthful 6-year-old peated Islay spirit, our team have kept the maturation short. For its final 7 months, this spirit has been matured in PX Sherry hogsheads with the aim of introducing a delicate, fruity character to the heavy, smoky Islay personality.

Nose: lush, dried fruit, coastal bonfire
Palate: sweet peat, mocha, dried orange
Finish: Ximenez-Spinola PX
