Caol Ila 12 Years 70cl 43% vol. It is an Islay single malt aged in American oak and European oak barrels, medium bodied but with powerful phenols from the process of malting with peat. Caol Ila 12 perfectly embodies the smoky and peaty notes characteristic of the distillery. A refined and powerful whiskey, with an unctuous, almost oily palate.
Caol Ila, from Gaelic " Taigh-staile Chaol Ìle", which translated means "The Strait of Islay", is located north of the island of Islay, near Port Askaig.
The distillery, founded in 1846 by Hector Henderson, was strategically located near Loch Nam Ban, the distillery's water source, which today maintains its mission. The malt used by Caol Ila comes from Port Ellen, located to the south of Islay and surrounded by Laphroaig, Lagavulin and Ardbeg, the supplied barley is malted using peat, which gives the Caol Ila whiskeys the characteristic flavor and aroma of the island.
The distillery begins to undergo the first changes after eight years since its founding, due to economic difficulties, Henderson sells the distillery to Norman Bchanan, owner of the Isle of Jura distillery, located on the neighboring island. In 1863 Bulloch Lade & Co. bought the distillery and seventeen years later increased production, increasing the capacity to 556,000 liters per year.
In 1920 the company became the property of Caol Ila Distillery Company Ltd., which during the Second World War ceased all production due to the rationalization of barley. Finally in 1972, the distillery would undergo its last major change, within two years, the entire distillery was demolished and rebuilt from the ground up. Today Caol Ila belongs to Diageo.
Caol Ila is the biggest distillery with the largest production capacity in Islay, with an annual capacity of 6,500,000 liters, the whiskey that defines the distillery is light, pale, with medicinal and floral peat . Most of the whiskey that the distillery produces, more than 90%, is used to mix whiskeys to make Johnnie Walker and Black Bottle. The rest of the whiskey is bottled as single malt.
