Caol Ila 2012 Tasting Notes

Nose: Everything Islay, and more. Salty enough to be pulled from the ocean. Peaty enough to be laying in the heather. Smokey enough to be fireside and Dunyvaig castle.

Palate: Smokey BBQ notes mingle with salty, peppery peat. Add a dollop of marsala sweetness and lingering sweet oak and we are in Islay heaven.

Finish: Sweet smokey BBQ lingers and keeps reminding you of this special whisky.

Meet the Founder

Mike Collings

Mike Collings could have retired with an incredible track record in whisky. He had created Johnnie Walker Blue & Green Labels, The Classic Malts, Rare Malts, Distillers Edition, Flora & Fauna series, Cardhu and Royal Lochnagar. That’s pretty good as far as CVs go.

He’s been working in whisky for 40 years. You couldn’t blame him for packing it in and putting his feet up. That would have been the sensible thing to do. But Mike is many things. Sensible isn’t one of them. Mike stirs the pot. He thinks about things differently and always asks: ‘what if …’

So, he found himself enjoying a few drams in a Tokyo bar thinking: what if I created a whisky that was unique on the single cask single malt market.

So he did. And it's Firkin awesome whisky.
