Whisky Reviews for An Islay Distillery 2008 WIN
8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.95 points
- A perfectly nice Islay (Lagavulin) experience. Less complex than the 12 yo CS special releases, but then again it's a lot cheaper as well.
Fresh peat, not that heavy on pure smoke, salty and initially even a little floral. Quite sweet, vanilla, lemon, sweet oranges, salted liquorice and butter, mild wood spices and a little dusty.
Slightly fatter on the smoke and peat, clear liquorice, still sweet with citrus and creamy vanilla, quite some black pepper and a bitter charred wood note.
Long with black liquorice, black pepper, some sweet citrus, ending with a drying note of charred wood and some ashiness.
- Nice van Gogh'ish painting of the Lagavulin Distillery.
He should have sticked to a dram instead of absinth ,which made him crazy enough to cut his ear off..
