    Out of sight, in a remote cove near Port Askaig lies Caol Ila, hidden gem among Islay's distilleries since 1846. Not easy to find, Caol Ila's secret malt is nonetheless highly prized among devotees of the Islay style. Caol Ila Distillery, Port Askaig, Isle of Islay. Caol Ila's name (say Cull Eela) comes from the Gaelic for Sound of Islay. Built in 1846 near Port Askaig, the costly establishment of this remotest of coastal Islay distilleries bankrupted Hector Henderson, its first owner. However, the single malt made in this hidden cove, although never easy to find, was always sought out for its combination of an unmistakable Islay character with sublime drinkability. Typically pale golden and peated, today's Caol Ila remains true to its traditions. Not as pungent or heavy as some of its neighbors and remarkably fresh-tasting, it is yet deceptively intense in the finish, It has all the fresh sea-air aromas and smoky-dry flavours of an expressive, appetizing Islay malt. 43% Alc./Vol.
