  1. Mr.Wong scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    Delicious sweet and Smokey dram. The smoke notes from the Lagavulin are clearly noticeable. The PX cask has done an incredible job and turned this smoke dram into a very sweet explosion of strawberry and raspberry marmalade. A bit too sweet though. This dram serves perfectly after a decent dinner as a desert.
    • Nose
      Smoke, sweet red and dried fruits
    • Taste
      Delicious balanced smoke with a lot of sweet red fruits, such as strawberries and raspberries.
    • Finish
      Sweet and less smoke

      Wonderfully balanced and sweet fruity PX-Sherry with a subtle smoke note, dates, honey, red fruits in frosting.

      Ripe strawberries, cherries, forest honey. The alcohol is fabulously integrated and it could have been more than 50% by volume.

      Slightly peppery smoke. The sweetness and fruits stay long, the smoke accompanies discreet and pleasant.

    Very sweet! More like a fruity desert whisky.

  5. nallacam scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    I liked the Old Man a little better. Are both very special and sweet for me and with a not very pleasant peat.

      sweet smoke, stewed compote, cinnamon, caramel, dark chocolate, not super complex but very harmonious

  6. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Violent, how sweet that is. In the mouth, the sweetness even partially covers the smoke. For people who like it cute maybe that's what. For me that's a good deal too much.

    Fantastic 10yo sherried Lagavulin.
