[December, 2013]  I found another dram in an advents calendar sampled by MaRa.

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 it 90.  I took no detailed notes.

There is no accounting for taste...

Ah, tout ce que j'aime : de la tourbe, grasse, sur le goudron, le tabac et la sauce barbecue, et du sherry, plein de cacao, d'abricots secs avec une touche acidulée d'orange sanguine. Miam !!

La bouche est grasse, avec une attaque franche et une belle tourbe fumée (Lapsang Souchong, vraiment !) qui vous envahit le palais. Le sherry apporte une belle rondeur à l'ensemble. Du sel et des notes de tabac complètent le tableau. L'alcool est parfaitement intégré.

La finale est très longue, abondamment tourbée et voit des notes amères de gentiane et de réglisse se mêler à la douceur acidulée du zeste d'orange confite.

Un magnifique Lagavulin parfaitement à mon goût !

Hm, I thought I added that as a note at some point in the past already. Apparently not.

This is from the same cask-vatting as the 1994-2010 Lagavulin Distiller`s Edition, but left at vatting strength and was sold for 70 GBP at the distillery if I remember correctly.

Remember - whisky scores and impressions are highly subjective and situational by nature - so don't go and buy whisky according to someone else's taste...

Nose

The soft, but massive peat is beautifully balanced with the fruit notes. Where the fruit on the standard distillers edition seems jammy, here the higher strength makes for a combination of fresher fruit and boiled fruit sweets and barley sugar. Plenty of classic iodine and salt fish peat-reek in there too.

Taste

Quite tight on the palate at full strength, but it will do. Raspberry and rhubarb with sugar and ash enveloped in coal smoke.

Finish

Slightly sour and ashy. But I like it.

Comments

Not the best Laga ever bottled, but it remains Lagavulin and I love it for that.

It's better to have drunk it all than never to have drunk at all.

I fully agree with you, magic_slim! Lagavulin still is one of my first "loves".
