Proof66 Notes

Caol Ila Distiller was founded in 1846 by Hector Henderson on the northeastern shore of the Sound of Islay. It changed hands a few times until demolished in 1972 to make way for a larger edifice and production resumed in 1974 with a modern and updated distillery. It is named for the Sound of Islay by which shipments of barley and scotch whisky make their way... Caol Ila is the Gaelic name fo rthe Sound. The correct pronunciation of this is "kuh-LEE-luh" roughly translated as "sound of islay." Caol Ila is operated by United Distillers & Vintners, itself a subsidiary of Diageo.

Caol Ila 12yr Unpeated single malt defies the traditional Islay peat in this expression first launched in 2010. Lacking peat, it will also lack the heavy, smoky flavor that many associate with Islay scotches. It is aged for 12 years in American oak bourbon barrels.
