The 2001 vintage of Caol Ila's entry in Diageo's Distillers Edition range, taking their regular smoky malt and finishing it in sweet Moscatel-wine casks for an extra depth of sweetness.Tasting Notes (1)
Caol Ila 2001 Distillers Edition
- Dried Fruit
Producer's Tasting Note
Wonderfully concentrated pure, clean Caol Ila – peaty and medicinal, with rich fruit, spicy and fragrant. With water, the fragrant smokiness comes singing through.
Sweetness and maltiness strike first, then are quickly overwhelmed by peat smoke and intense, clean, crisp flavours. Caol Ila’s signature smoky bonfires are here, and build to quite a size. Overall, drying, in a beautifully balanced, complex, elegant development, complemented with cinnamon spice.
Long, rounded, robust and multi-layered.

Heavy peat flavour. Extremely smooth. No burn , a must try.
Great whisky and won't break the bank
This particular distiller's edition is in my opinion, the best whisky ever made. Thanks to the Whisky Exchange for making it available. I searched 3 continents for it before finding it here.
