    It is quite in your face. But it's also a lot of fun. In the category of young Laphroaigs from sherry cask, e.g. the 2021 Feis Ile. I like that!

    Great balance, great young Caol Ila. 94 bottles isn't enough.
    • Nose
      Engine oil, soot, TCP, sweet BBQ bacon, mandarins, smoke, vanilla. Some leaves.
    • Taste
      Soot, kipper, pepper, BBQ bacon again, citrus, yellow/orange fruits, iodine.
    • Finish
      Iodine, engine oil, kipper, smoke, a drop of BBQ sauce, rich yellow fruits, grapefruit, mint leaves, mandarins, honeydew melon.

      I prefer the dram slightly diluted.
