I've rated 2 other bottlings of the 16, and they were 92 and 91 points. Here I land at 90 points.
So is the Lagga laggin' ?
It might be the bottling, it might be my pallate tonight, it's anyway a darn good dram at what we still can agree is value for money.
The nose is Lagavulin.
It's very nice and it's all there, but if I am to be a bit critical, maybe it is a little softer on the edges than what I remember, or rather expected.
The same goes for the pallate.
It's not the blast I expected, it actually arrives a little watery.
That said, it picks up to recognition very quickly.
It's still good ol' Lagga.
The finish is as expected. Actually the most spicy part of it.
Peat, sweet and salty licorice.
Clean as peat can be, with a good lenght.
