    Not so smoky but rather quite maritime - either you like it or not

    I compared head 2 head to a previous cask #2132 from 2007 that was more citrusy and fruity and not so tarry - anyhow those Lagavulins have a solid basis
    • Nose
      88 88
      Strong sea breeze, iodine, seaweed, smoked fish, little vanilla, green tea, peat, wet hay, little herbal
    • Taste
      89 89
      Very oily, creamy, liquorice, little sweetness, more peat, little smoke, herbs, dried seaweed ("nori"), little citric, salty, hints of bonfire, little tarry - not bad
    • Finish
      86 86
      Long, warm, peaty and smoky, little herbal, more tarry, probaby a tad bitter
