Caol Ila Moch Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)


Out of stock




…This new expression from Diageo’s Islay distillery of Caol Ila carries no age statement and takes its name from the Gaelic word for “dawn.” Initially, it will be exclusively available to registered Friends of the Classic Malts, and may ultimately go on wider release. Billy Stitchell, long-time distillery manager at Caol Ila, says that Moch is selected for taste rather than age, and you’ll still find it every inch a Caol Ila. It’s a new departure for us, to have a whisky that’s not defined by age or strength or finish, but by taste, and it’s an exciting development, I think. Initially a little mashy on the nose; inky, with brine, peat and a hint of peanut brittle. Soft and sweet in the mouth, with developing notes of caramel and bonfire smoke. The finish is medium in length, drying with more smoke and root ginger. 43.0% ABV 3 stars –
