Caol Ila

Caol Ila

Aged 12 Years Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Nose is camp fire, pepper, sea breeze, and some faint lemon peel.

Pretty dry up front with big spice/pepper notes. Smoke builds on palate and crescendos in a salty smoked bacon note with some lemon pith. Long, savory finish.

An Islay beauty. Not as much malt or wood sweetness as others, but really nice brine notes and plastic phenolic notes are subdued. Yum.

Faultline & Seven Grand Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Doug Burress

A new Faultline Scotch with collaborators Seven Grand that features the smoky, briny, peaty 6 year old Caol Ila. Bottle by Hunter Laing. For a young Caol Ila this bottling is rich and smoky with a wonderfully long finish. — 3 years ago

"Les Deux Albion" Côtes du Rhône White Rhône Blend 2017

Yes it’s stonefruit, yes it’s floral, but, savage reaches of wicked time, it’s saline like Caol Ila—the honey’d richness of bandaid funk. Gorgeous, brave, & sneaky-big. — 3 months ago


Syrah Santa Ynez Valley 2014

Nice full bodied red. A lot going on here, dark berry, black pepper lavender to the nose. Pepper and dark berry continues along with dried herbs, thyme and a cocoa finish. Paired with grilled lake salmon. — 2 years ago
