    Uncompromising coastal Islay. I'm thinking Laphroaig but far from sure because not that heavy with TCP. Could be Caol Ila (most un-named Islay's are) but lacks that citrus/ bacon note. I hoped for Bowmore but def not. Equally, not Lagavulin or Ardbeg because lacks the weight. VERY good if you like your Islay like a slap round the face with a kipper. Personally I wont buy again, but for Islay fiends it's a must-buy.

    Maybe Kilchoman? but not a whisky I have tried.

    Update: 19 days later. Much improved & mellower now the level in the bottle has gone down. Fairly sure it's a GOOD Caol Isla, has a distinct pungent whiff of stables & horses. Similar to "Islay #1 - Batch 1 (That Boutique-y Whisky Company)"

      Light & bright, kelp smoke, antiseptic, lime juice, a touch of sherry cask (but zero Bourbon). Very promising.

      Immediately sour & bitter. Numbing bonfire smoke. Dettol. Some sweet malt coming through....it tasted much better earlier this evening.

      Mouth tingling, biting phenolic, really wipes out the palate so any complexity vanishes. This is a dram to drink in front of a smokey log fire while your eyes are streaming. After the first glass you can no longer taste anything else.
