      Apricot, peach, lemon. White grapes.
      Light pencil lead.

      Short final on water, peat and camphor.

  2. ARDBERG scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Great sippin whisky - tends towards the 16 but more crisp and lively and with quite some power despite the 43%.

  5. ctu scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Promising nose, but unfortunately quite thin in taste.

      Peat, honey, citruses, earth, musty cellar, salted minerals and waxy fruits.
    • Taste
      Thin and watery. Peat, waxy fruits, caramel, honey and pepper.
    • Finish
      Medium length. Peat and camphor.

    with water: no, I would leave that out definitely

    Conclusion: Blind I would immediately tap on a Laphroaig, the salt / Jofnote is so typical or rather unusual for a Laga. The low alcohol strength takes him strength, with 46% he would certainly better. The peat is not as strong as usual. Overall, a slimmed-down Laga, as an introduction to this distillery with security great, but overall he falls back next to the other bottlings of the distillery - Too bad
    • Nose
      87 87
      amazing saline and iodine-like in the first nose, but very strongly reminiscent of the neighboring distillery Laphroaig, slightly earthy peat, pebble beach with dried algae, some cowshed, knotty oak, vanilla and biscuit, slightly dirty, overall somewhat one-dimensional
    • Taste
      85 85
      At the first sip you notice the lack of power due to the "only" 43%, beautiful caramel sweetness, interspersed with peat, the iodine salt notes set only a little later, even a little mushy banana comes to it
    • Finish
      85 85
      medium, peaty, salty, and salt, maritime with significant peat impact, but less violent than usual, here he has enough strength to convince

  7. Marcus2 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Lagavulin 10 years

    smoky a mix of medicinal notes and campfires, herbs, leather, floral perhaps moss, cereals, spirit, licorice, vanilla copper, caramel, sugarcane, quite away orange or citrus, wood, smell nothing maritimes

    Smoky, sweet, cereals, herbs, mild, ashen, subtly peppery, for one or the other certainly too watery

    a little sweet on the finish

    Successful malt not insanely high alcohol content or old. The nose is very complex. I like him a lot.

  8. arlacobu scored this whisky 85 points Member Senior

    Friend asked me what to get after taking care of dog and picking her up at Schiphol. Islay and CS, but it became 43% which is a big shame. Lost so much character. Nose is certainly still Laga, taste low until finish kicks in with typical Lagavulin standard characteristics when whisky mingles with water in your mouth. I prefer cask strength a lot, now you got a typical islay laga with not enough character.
