Unexpected taste for such a young one.

This bottle gives a very solid Islay taste (Caol Ila?), which you would not expect from such a young age. I never dilute with water, so I really enjoy the extra bite of the cask strength. If I would have known in time that it would be discontinued I would have got more bottles...

The entire signatory range isn't chillfiltered!

Fresh and... Devastating

This is seriously heavy stuff. It took a good few teaspoons of water to mellow this one out. Also, I think it's Caol Ila.

Seriously vigorous and young. Takes a lot of water. This is like drinking a tequila shot (salt, lime and everything) next to a bonfire. Also, why don't they mention on the bottle that this one has escaped without being chill-filtered?
