About Caol Ila
The Caol Ila distillery, near the Islay port town of Port Askaig overlooks the Sound of Islay, a strip of water between Islay and Jura after which the distillery is named. Described by some as one of the lighter peated islay malts, the style is oily and smoky with a seaside tang and has peaty, floral and peppery notes.
While whisky from this distillery was originally used mainly in blends such as Johnnie Walker, the increasing popularity of single malts has seen it become much more popular.
Kingsbury is an Aberdeen-based independent bottler. Founded in 1989 with offices in London it focuses on offering single malt whiskies from highly regarded distilleries across Scotland. Each of the single cask offerings comes from a hand selected cask that has been vetting for quality.
