The Caol Ila 15 Year Old 'Unpeated Style' Single Malt Scotch Whisky is a remarkable departure from the distillery's traditional peated expressions. Crafted on the famed Islay, known for its heavily peated whiskies, this special edition demonstrates the distillery's ability to diversify its offerings with skill and creativity. Released as part of Diageo's Special Releases, this unpeated Scotch is bottled at cask strength, providing a robust and pure taste of the distillery's capabilities without the influence of peat.

Versatility and Unique Unpeated Profile:

This 15-year-old unpeated Scotch highlights Caol Ila’s versatility, focusing on the natural character of the whisky without the typical smoky flavors. This expression offers enthusiasts and newcomers alike the opportunity to explore the distillery's craftsmanship in a new light, featuring a rich complexity and an array of unexpected flavors.

Tasting Experience:

  • Nose: The aroma presents a fascinating mix of sweet apricot and caramel, coupled with savory hints that recall grilled cheese. There are also vibrant notes of peaches, nectarines, and strawberries, adding a delightful fruity layer.
  • Palate: The palate delivers a robust and grain-forward profile with flavors of baked bread and fresh grains. Lighter notes of lemon, burnt marshmallow, and coffee bean emerge, especially when a bit of water is added, enhancing the whisky's complexity and drinkability.
  • Finish: The finish of this whisky varies, typically featuring a bitter note akin to an IPA, which adds an intriguing twist to the experience. Some tasters might find the depth in the finish less pronounced, yet it remains a compelling component of the overall profile.
