  1. Kovalyoff scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    I tried a glass from whisky.de - it loses significantly to Blender's Glass. Perhaps the cask strength will be just right, but for now testing from Blenders ...
    Comparative tasting of 2006 and 2016 bottling - 10 years later ...

    2006:
    Aroma: smoked meat, salt and spices, BBQ coals, aroma is not aggressive and sweet, after habituation the receptors mean meadow grasses and hayfields ... peat is very edible ... 22
    Taste: oily, smoked meat, soldier's belt leather and pipe tobacco 23
    Finish: long-lasting, pleasant, warm, with a slight bitterness 22
    This is the Lag that I fell in love with at one time - 89

    2016:
    Aroma: in comparison with 2006 it is different - in the foreground candies and vanilla in peat ... Very edible, smoked meat again, charcoal on the grill ... 22
    Taste: lacks fat, more watery ... still smoked, but already a lot of herbal bitterness and spice ... 22
    Finish: long-lasting, smoked with a herbal bitterness ... 22
    It differs from 2006, but not as it is customary to scold - this is an excellent Lag - 88

  2. Igor_Gudimov scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Great, complex, and balanced smoky whisky
    • Nose
      Smoked meaty wet coal mixed with salty vegetal notes (smoked vegetables), after few minutes sherry is more prominent.
      In contrast with Lag 2019, it is prominent coal and vegetal, almost no iodine, maybe more soft and elegant
    • Taste
      Slightly sweet meaty liquid smoke, after that - oily, dry, vegetal smoke
    • Finish
      Long, dry, a lot of oily coal, and slightly bitter oak
