In an effort to modernize, the 122-year-old company Gordon & MacPhail overhauled all its ranges in April 2018. Its new Discovery range emphasises taste profiles over distillery provenance, and this 13 year old Caol Ila is meant to showcase Islay's smoky flavors.

Tasting Notes

"Apples, pears, and a pleasant hint of chamomile tea on the nose floats comfortably over the robust yet gentle peat smoke aroma. To taste, the malty and citrus elements shine through, and the butter and meaty smoke merge together nicely. "
