Scotch and Other Whiskies > Single Malt > Caol Ila
Peatheads, rejoice! For those searching for a fix of sharp, young peat and bucketloads of billowy smoke, look no further. Port Askaig is a wee ferry port off the east coast of the isle of Islay. Its proximity to two of the island's most unfairly overlooked distilleries should give some sort of clue as to the pedigree of this neat little treat of a dram. Your choices are either Caol Ila or Bunnahabhain, and let's just say the answer rhymes with Caol Ila (Do you know how hard it is to rhyme in Gaelic?!).
If you know the distillery's character you'll immediately be able to see it all over this one. A true value whisky too. 45.8% abv, uncolored and non chill-filtered.
Producer Tasting Note
Nose: Lemon zest and coal smoke with warming barley just turned on the malting floor.
Palate: Limestone, sugar snaps and coating of dark peat. Honeysuckle weaved with liquorice sweetness.
Finish: Fresh flavours of rock salt and black pepper linger as the smoke slowly fades.
