Bottled by Speciality Drinks Ltd this is an Islay single malt from an undisclosed distillery. The rumour is Coal Ila but we shall have to wait and see. The colour

The nose is smoky, lemon zest, bonfire ashes, peat and salty brine.

The palate is powerful yet balanced. Lovely thick smoke up front, peppery tang, peat, salted caramel and citrus. This is powerful in big flavours but mellow in the delivery. Oily and smooth in the mouth.

The finish is long, smoky and slightly drying.

A few years ago, I got to try this at a whisky bar (Nihon)in San Francisco. It was at the recommendation of the bartender, and it was quite good. When I mentioned that I'd like to find a bottle of that to take home, he laughed and said it is not for sale in the US. They only had it through "special arrangement." I went back not too long ago and noticed they must have made a similar arrangement with Hibiki, as they had a bottle of their 17YO. Anyway, it would be quite nice to try this along side a similarly aged / proofed Caol Ila.
