Another mysterious Islay single malt independently bottled by That Boutique-y Whisky Company! For Islay #4, the Boutique-y bunch have adorned the bottle with a scene from the Islay Distillers Boat Race 2008, with a few familiar faces from a few familiar Islay distillers setting sail in their trusty vessels. But who's that in last place?
It's That Boutique-y Whisky Company's very own Jake Mountain in his dinghy, putting paddle to the metal and getting nowhere fast. Oh, dear.
