Caol Ila in the north of Isle of Islay was founded as far back as 1846 by Hector Henderson. The distillery is sited near Port Askaig overlooking the beautiful Sound of Islay which it is named after in Gaelic- ‘Caol Ila’. Over the years the distillery changed hands numerous times and was subsequently bought by Distillers Company Ltd in 1927. In the early 1970’s there was a complete overhaul of the old buildings and six new stills were put in place then in 2022 a brand new visitors centre opened. Much of the whisky produced goes into the Johnnie Walker blends and a very small amount is kept aside for maturing as a Caol Ila expression. The single malt is mainly made with peated barley giving the final flavour profile that classic Islay taste. In the core range there’s the Moch with no age plus the 12, 18 and 25 year olds. Also in the range is The Distiller’s Edition which has a delicious muscatel finish.

Offical Tasting Notes


Fragrant tropical pineapple and mango notes combine with spiced pear. Sweet orange notes give way to subtle vanilla and rich smoke. 


Cured meat flavours lead to citrus zest and a hint of walnut. Dried apricot comes to the fore alongside aniseed and black pepper. 


Full and long finish with lingering honeydew melon and bonfire embers.
