    I had 3 glasses of this last night and I think the 2018 Laga 16 is as good as ever in fact this bottle is more potent than I remember, more brine and peat and some liquorice.
    Someone I was with had a tiny sip and was almost sick and he said he could taste is for ages, well 3 glasses , possibly 4 set me up for the night that is for sure, still good value even if it is approaching £60 in some places

    Classic dram which holds up to the test of time... never had the older versions, but this 2018 bottling is very enjoyable, a bit harsh at first, but it eases when you give it a few moments to breathe

  6. Buecherwurm scored this whisky 88 points Member Senior

    Nose: strong phenolic, very smoky, light sherry sweetness, very full-bodied, tobacco, well-cared-for leather

    Taste: Campfire, ashen, tingling, astringent, spicy

    Finish: long, cold smoker, tobacco, leather

    Conclusion: nice smoker, but nothing for every evening
