  1. sagara-kun scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Bottle code: L9199CM001. I think it was bottled in 2019.

    To hell with complexity. Here we take it in the palace! The pleasure is there.

      Lots of smoke, peat. Barbecue, cold ash.
      Eucalyptus, fresh mint.
      Pepper, oily leather. A little gooseberry. Aromatic herbs.
      Beautiful intensity for 43%.

      In the mouth it is a little lighter. I would like 5% more.
      More fruit than on the nose. Red cherry, plum, currant, pear.
      Cold ash, tobacco.
      It's a bit simple.

      Long finish that warms up.
      Barbecue, cold ash.

  3. KB201 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    The Lagavulin classic is kilned with a high proportion of smoke in the malt. The stills at the distillery are pear-shaped, allowing all of the flavors to be transferred to the condensers during distillation. The single malt then matures to perfection in bourbon and sherry casks.

  5. marmeladow scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    bottled 06/23/2019 - 825513 - Sample from half-empty bottle
    perfect Islay classic: harmoniously embedded ham smoke, married with maritime notes and the diverse taste of wonderful barrel aging

    Nicely peated but not too peated or smoky. As I like it personally.
    Long finish, a simple taste everywhere but beautiful in its simplicity.
    Given the price 1 that you must have at home.
