Nothing could be more natural than a young Caol Ila joining the Artist Collective range! Produced from 1.5 cask, this incredibly fresh, complex and mature bottling boasts all the qualities for which this single malt is renowned. Delicate smoke, a salty, iodine character that clearly evokes the seafront, particularly tangy fruit and, especially for this small batch, a charm that will knock you off your feet.
Profile: the complex initial nose is smoky, iodine and salty - Caol Ila in its element. This is accompanied by citrus fruit, a note of vanilla, ash and pepper. The rocky attack reveals incredibly delicate peat. On the mid-palate, propelled by a sea breeze, it sets sails for the high sea. Full of energy, the finish evokes wet rope before becoming increasingly oily (green olive). Small Batch – First Fill Hogshead Limited edition of 2 550 bottles
