Call Ila, meaning “The Sound of Islay”, is a most underrated and hidden gem of all of the Islay distilleries.
Presenting a Caol Ila that has aged mostly within Ex-Bourbon barrels before experiencing a final refined finished in former Moscatel casks. Classic Caol Ila medicinal aromas grab your attention then guide you through fragrant pears, red currants, rhubarb, freshly cracked white pepper whilst a maritime smokiness lingers in the background. Malty sweetness, cinnamon, fresh herbs, clean sea air merge with an earthy peat quality. A sensation of a campfire smoke and mist floats across a sandy beach. Elegantly elemental complexity with a long lasting robust finish.
Pure, refined and wonderfully balanced...
