    ‘Blind Islay fury’ was a blind tasting organised by Whiskylounge. We started here.
    N: This is solely from bourbon casks i believe, bottled for Cadenhead [whisky shop]. It’s not a big smoker, leaning more towards thick & sweet creamy fruits. Bowmore? In time the grasses appear followed by the barley. Kilchoman? Adding water means the phenols dissipate bringing the esters to the foreground - am i right? Floral orange blossoms before giving way to the active and strong oak. I’m reckoning 8-10 years, possibly in 1st fill bourbon and/or active 2nd refills.
    T:  The peat is pleasantly chivalrous in giving the barley full freedom of movement. There’s quite some dryness on the palate which indicates it’s easily around 10 years old. The mouthfeel is so different with water - creamy, lush barley, a touch salty.
    F: Waxy-dry longish barley finish and youthful to the last.
    C: Hmm, so what is it - the Laddie 10? It reminds me more of the Kilkerran 12 WB than anything from Islay. Low and behold it's not an Islay malt at all but a Campbeltown after all, and it all makes sense. This is really decent barley spirit regardless of its red herring status in context of the tasting. On to number two WB.
