CAOL ILA 12-year-old 2010 Moscatel Finish Antipodes B.Bros 56,8%
The single malt CAOL ILA 12-year-old 2010 Moscatel Finish Antipodes transcends, without distorting, the style so characteristic of the single malt produced by the largest distillery on the island of Islay. It was refined in barrels having contained Portuguese sweet wine from the Moscatel grape variety. They offer us a smoked and iodized single malt with delicate notes of honey, grapes and jasmine.
Nose: Rich, deep. On the first nose, notes of ashes and then, an oily peat. The aromas of honey and candied fruit complete the picture.
Palate: Lively and oily, with peat, sea spray, fleur de sel, malted barley, smoke.
Finish: Long, balanced, peat, honey, mineral, saline.
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.
