      Stainless steel, banana peels, nail polish and vehicle exhaust. It took a while in the glass to develop honeydew, pear peel and green grapes. The finish gave some cinnamon as well.
    • Taste
      81 81
      Dust, banana peels, nail polish and metal. Consistent with the nosing. Melon rind, green tea, dirty honey, barnyard and some bitter hay.
    • Finish
      79 79
      Not a good start. Metallic again. Plastic boxes, burnt spices, thick smoke from burning tyres, aloe vera, over roasted sea fish and seaweed. After the flavours faded, you could only find bitter oak.

    • Nose
      N- Exotic rambutan syrup, quintessential tropical fruits wrapped with sheets of smoky oak. Choking burnt wood, then to vegetal, nail polish remover. Plenty of acetone and ethyl oozing thru in a good way. Opened and stays true to the bottling characters well. (87/21)
    • Taste
      P- Top sweet tropical fruit nuances arrive with explosive raw strength, bold, burning spicy that stays bright and sharps. The hype of peat in the soul with rich feint notes concocted up a solid mouthfeel. Fiery and flame-y. (89/22)
    • Finish
      F- Long, medicinal, a rush of chewiness, nail polish remover, over the drift of 'chemically' acetone. Austere and rather heady. (88/22)

      B/B- 92/23 A solid medicinal and 'chemically' driven Islay malt with mesmerizing 'off' note that "characterized" into this bottling real well.

      Weighted Rate- 88pt

  5. molpet scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    I have compared it with the Diageo Special Release of Lagavulin 12y CS from 2019. The official bottling was much better in all of the key aspects: more sweetness, more spicyness, much stronger lemon note, better defined Laga smoke, better/oilier texture, longer more pleasant finish and overall ballance as well. In my opinion, this "Lg11 EID" bottling isn't worth its price tag and I would take the official 12y CS over this one every day of the week.

      Sweet peat with char
    • Taste
      88 88
      Nicely balance with honey, vanilla, charcoal, smoke and peat. Reminds me of Laga 12 2017 which I like.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium long, with sweet peat and char

  8. Daniel Hohleweg scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      88 88
      Maritime notes, salt, sea air, toffee, vanilla and a nice greasy peat note
    • Taste
      86 86
      The nose is confirmed. There is also a nice pepperiness with tannins from the barrel and a restrained citrus note
    • Finish
      86 86
      The greasy peat is preserved for a long time

    Notes by producer;

    This is a marriage of two barrels of 2007 Lagavulin, which was aged for 14 years, and a further two 2007 barrels, which were aged for eight years and subsequently rested in glass to maintain their sprightly character. This whisky displays a generous helping of coastal character, along with plenty of creamy and savoury flavours. 1067 bottles produced.

    Tasting Notes;

    Nose
    Chewy toffee penny sweets and Russian Caravan tea leaves. Dried seaweed and dried meat entwine with juicy red grapes and rolled oats.

    Palate
    Smoked pancetta carbonara and cracked black pepper. A hint of almond butter and a bag of Scampi Fries, followed by fruit with a coastal edge - zesty pear chutney and freshly-shucked oysters.

    Finish
    Punchy and lingering - creamy nettle soup and prosciutto-wrapped asparagus, with lots of earthy smoke.
