Elements of Islay, CL10 Full Proof, 58.2% 500ml
Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
This marriage of three American Oak hogsheads of Caol Ila distilled in 2008 and 2009 showcases the distillery’s characteristic smoke, citrus and salinity in perfect measure.
CORE FLAVOUR: Buttery orange cake.
NOSE: Sweet orange combines with butter and wisps of smoke.
PALATE: A silky-smooth buttery texture sits perfectly alongside zesty bitter orange—giving the impression of biting into an orange drizzle cake. This gradually gives way to rich, woody smoke, which slowly rolls over the palate leading to a final hint of salt and medicinal peat reek.
FINISH: Lingering buttery orange, with a sprinkling of coastal rock salt.
ABOUT ELEMENTS OF ISLAY
The Elements of Islay are a range of iconic, small-batch, expertly sourced independently bottled whiskies.
The Limited Edition range consists of single malt bottlings from individual Islay distilleries identified with periodic symbols and batch numbers (Lp1, Ar2, and so on).
They are bottled either as single casks or as small batches between 3 and 20 carefully selected casks.
These expressions celebrate the distilleries’ individual character while presenting a balanced and characterful whisky bottled at full proof.
