CAOL ILA 7 Year 2013 - Collective 4.0 57.2%

€95.50 VAT included

CAOL ILA 2007 2013 transcends, without altering it, the style so characteristic of the single malt produced by this largest distillery on the island of Islay. In order not to be outdone and for the sake of harmony, the other ingredients that make up its aromatic and taste palette have also increased their level of play. Thus, malted barley is poured out in whole grains on the palate. while its fruity register becomes more and more exotic over time. Another singularity, the resemblance to a mezcal is also one of the highlights of the tasting. 

LMDW calls on contemporary artists from very different worlds to produce original labels. Each of them brings a very personal touch that echoes the richness of the selected single malts. 

Quantity

Nose : Rich, deep. Notes of ash and tobacco literally emerge from the glass. Then, sleet, Creosote and burnt peat invade. With aeration, limes and barley, also green, creep up to the surface of the aromatic palette. Very marine (seaweed, cod liver oil) and medicinal (mustard, balm) it opens with other citrus fruits (grapefruit, lemon).

Palate : Both lively and oily, the attack on the gives a rare sharpness the sensation of biting malted, smoky barley grains. In the middle of the mouth, acacia honey constitutes an ideal binder with the deeply medicinal character (tincture of iodine, sinapism) of the end. 

Finish : Long, balanced. Crossed by thick curls of smoke, with notes of agave, terracotta, salt and lemon, evokes a mezcal of great lineage. Malted barley is still present.

THE BRAND

Founded in 1846 by Hector Henderson, the Caol Ila Distillery is the largest producer of whisky on the Isle of Islay, capable of producing up to 7 million liters of alcohol in just one week. To produce and develop this Caol Ila single malt, the barley is always malted on the island, in Port Ellen, and the spring water used comes from a source upstream of the distillery infiltrating through the limestone to then flows into Loch nam Bonnach, thus respecting the ancestral tradition of the distillery.
