    [January, 2010]  I emptied a bottle that I bought for 27 Euro in April, 2003.In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this 85.  My notes state a typical young Lagavulin that is easy to drink.

  5. peatbogger scored this whisky 84 points Specialist

    It's Islay alright.

    Peat, tar, salty sea both on nose and taste.

    Initally reminded me of Laphroaig without the iodine, not as distingt as a Lagavulin 16, but it might be it's younger sibling.

    Full flavoured at a budget!

    MacLeod's 08-year-old IM (Ian MacLeod's Bottling)
    Tasted 2015-04-14 @ home:
    N: Slightly spicy onset with a distinct bitter orange tone, refreshingly metallic
    T: strong peat smoke with cocoa, then quickly swaying from sweetened coffee to espresso while woody aromas are present all the time. Medium-short dry finish with slightly sweetish woody notes.
    - good overall - 75
