  1. mothers_finest scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Not a bad whisky, especially if you're on smoke and port, but it's not very complex. Who does not have time to finshen something like this (eg 3 bottles of Lagavulin 12 CS in a 2L Ex port barrel) will find it here.
    A typical Islay (could be a young Lagavulin) has undergone much additive maturation; young, fruity, smoky and stormy.
    The price for 500ml is quite ambitious - but I do not consider that in my review.

    Oh I hear the aficionados complain again that the barrel was soaking wet :)
