HEY YEWWW…. JIMMAAAAHHH!!! Looking for a whisky that reeks like an over serviced hospital that’s been attacked with a tar bomb? A whisky that is uncompromising in its “I’ll have you Jimmy!” attitude – and may give you a Glaswegian kiss if you take your eyes off it for a second? A whisky that merely popping it’s cork will make your house smell like a salted asphalt truck blew up in it?
Well do we have whisky for YOU! An exclusive, cask strength, Italian independent bottling of an Islay monster!
So please, get outta the way, take cover or run! The Wilson and Morgan Coal Ila 2010 Cask Strength is charging right at you as our Members Extra for the month. And the only people in Australia it’s going to wreck is the members of the best not-so-little whisky club around. That’s right – the entire Australian allocation of this monster is available exclusively to us! But be quick – there’s not many!
Peat forward in a big way, but an underlying sweetness balances this massive whisky nicely. It’s a peat freak’s wonderland!
Colour: ‘Typical’ Coal Ila pale straw in colour
Nose: Bandaids, iodine, coal fire and fresh bitumen, salty cured meats
Palate: WOAH! A massive peat blast with all those peaty treats, plus a side of lolly sweetness and notes of liquorice.
Finish: It’s no done with yew yet, Jimmy! A rollercoaster ride of smoke, brine and iodine but that sweetness keeps it all rolling smoothly. It just goes on and on and on…
I absolutely LOVE this whisky. It’s everything I want in a big peated Islay. If you don’t like peat, this whisky certainly ain’t for you – even a bit! But if, like me, you are magnetically drawn to those wonderful, peaty notes you simply can’t miss this one!
