Sipping Shed Caol Ila 10 Tasting Notes

Nose: Plenty of peat smoke and ozonic sea air leave you in no doubt as to where this whisky was raised. There’s honeysuckle too, with citrus aromas providing balance alongside a hint of apple skin.

Palate: Imagine a beach barbecue on the isle of Islay… smouldering smoky coals mingle with gentle floral notes and heather blowing on the sea-soaked breeze… mmm. That. But as whisky. Classic Islay. Classic Caol Ila. Smoky, peaty and multilayered.

Finish: Long with fading wood embers providing the final wisp of smoke.

About this whisky

A note from Dan: This is a great, straight-up, unfinished crisp Caol Ila. It’s also a classic example of single cask whisky. It has more definition and precision than the distillery releases but retains the distillery character so you immediately know it’s a Caol Ila. There’s something about this bottling that transports me to Islay and makes me want to venture out on a blustery day. It immediately evokes fond memories of Islay. Surprisingly approachable at cask strength.
