Description

Introducing the Cl12, the twelth stunning  batch of this particular expression from Elements of Islay

This whisky from Caol Ila was distilled in 2011  and aged for seven years in two refill sherry butts which yielded a total of 1,901 bottles.

A solid coastal malt, it balances briny freshness with minerals, young grassy flavours, herbs and peat.     

Please note, this is limited to 1 per customer. 

 

Tasting Notes

Nose: Classically maritime. Slate tiles, saltwater, warm tarmac on a sunny day. Sour apple sweets, pouilly-Fumé wine, aguardiente, rhubarb and custard.

Palate: Astringent smoke with salt and liquorice. More orchard fruits, alongside green grass and citrus zest. Lots of cigarette notes, cold smoked meats, chervil and tarragon.

Finish: Peaty finish with cloudy lemonade, coal dust, fresh herbs and grapefruit peel.
