Actually based in Melbourne and have been meaning to check out that bar. I believe they run with the Scottish Malt Whisky Society whisky's and am heading to one of their tastings in a couple of weeks with a pal.
By the way thanks for the review. Purchased a bottle of the Coal Ila 12 today - had a very small dram....will keep you posted. First impression was that it is very similar to Lagavulin 16 but perhaps a bit less rich/ rounded..a bit more front of tongue and a finish in the back of the mouth. The Lag 16 is perhaps fuller.
Stop by next time you are in town and I will shout you a dram.
