...and this dram is rather sub-standard despite it is a Lagavulin, most probably. Obviously, the casks were quite exhausted and contributed not much to the maturation (see the very pale colour) except a rather unpleasant cardboardy feeling (which comes from old woods, usually). A dram that is unnecessary...
The colour is white wine and the nose offers a somewhat immature heavily peated profil as if the wood was rather inactive (or exhausted, what would explain the very pale colour, too). Actually, I do not like such "peat-only" noses because this simply is ... boring.
The taste is barley sugary sweet and peaty-bitter in a balanced but simple combo. It is better than the nose but still a little sub-standard (according to my taste buds). I guess this is one of these young Lagavulins that are sold bulk-wise by Diageo (so no one sees the leached casks they matured in).
The initial mouthfeel is warming and coating with a minor drying-astringent moment. The finish is medium to long and adds no new impressions except a minor drying feeling (of wet cardboards). Water releases chalky aromas in the nose and turns the taste smoother, actually I like this dram best when reduced to about 40% abv.
