In 1846, Hector Henderson founded a distillery on Islay. He named it Caol Ila (‘Sound of Islay’) after the distillery’s scenic location. Today, Caol Ila is the largest whisky producer on the island. Join us in celebrating the 175th anniversary of this fantastic distillery with the commemorative Caol Ila 24 Years Old 175th Anniversary. Only 3000 bottles of this cask strength whisky were released. Caol Ila 24 Years Old 175th Anniversary is an elegant single malt with an abundance of fresh fruits on the nose, followed by aromas of peaty smoke, buttery pastry and creamy vanilla. On the palate you’ll find an intense honeyed sweetness balanced with hints of sea salt, pepper and light smoke. The finish is long and warming with a light charred smokiness, rich cocoa and soft spices. A wonderful Caol Ila that showcases the characteristic smoky smoothness and sweet sea air aromas. We can’t think of a better way to honour the legacy of Islay’s prominent treasure.
