  1. ConvalRen scored this whisky 73 points Connoisseur

    First tried with 30 mins of air, then another after 2 hours. Unable to continue further due to the hardcore smoke and disgusting taste. Left it to sit in an air-con room for 30 hours and it was still not cloudy, however, all the smoke has dissipated leaving only a sweet, fruity and bright flavor profile that was quite enjoyable. Just like a basic Lagavulin 16 without the peat.

    Definitely interesting, but it's not for me. Wouldn't drink again.

      Roasted coffee burns, car exhaust, extremely heavy smoke, and smog, burnt meat to cinders.

      Old dusty shelves, hay, baked sausages, dark chocolate, raisins, oven grease.

      Warm and lengthy, dry. Coffee, cigar ash, and burnt cabbage.

    1628) Lagavulin, 11YO, Offerman Edition, 2nd Edition, Finished In Guinness Casks (2021)
    • Nose
      N- Begin with smoky fruits...ala Laga style in the puffy sphere. Rubbed eucalyptus oils on palm that sooth the nasal. Bottled at 46% as the regular 16YO, this appeared subtle on the peat reeks with dark caramel, roasted nuts, coffee spent and relatable to the Guinness nuances as it intended without overrun by the oak. Whispering dram with moderation for casual sips with no lack of enjoyment. (86/20)
    • Taste
      P- Initial lovely bright sweet fruit and fresh peat on the tip of tongue. As it flow through, get tastier with more apparent strength on the mouth-coating and salt filled sea sprays. (86/20)
    • Finish
      F- Medium, the finishing calls for simplicity, touch of unoffensive sweetness, roasted malt, medicinal and freshness. (85/19)

      B/B- 86/20 With fine characters but lack depth, an easy drinking peated malt.

      Weighted Rate- 79pt

    Smell: the salty smell of raw nuts, grains, disinfected water, iodine, and sea water. Wake up, there is some fat, vanilla, creamy chocolate, green plants and lemon zest. Relatively fresh, the taste of bourbon barrels dominates, and the flavor of beer barrels is not noticeable too much. 84/100
    Taste: seafood, salted fish, chopped rosemary, creamy seafood pasta, walnut oil, salty and bitter tastes are obvious. The latter part becomes softer, nut crisp, butter cake, marshmallow 85/100
    Body: Normally oily, medium body 84/100
    Ending rhyme: long, spearmint, walnut film outside, oak
    Overall: 84.5/100, the second half of the flavor has some unique flavors and is relatively soft, but the overall is quite satisfactory, and the beer barrels hardly leave any marks. The flavor is similar to Laga 8 years, but it is softer and easier to drink than that.

  5. thebonewolf scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Green wood, seaweed, driftwood, coffee beans (dark).
    • Taste
      Smoky coffee with a stouty richness. Bit of spice and herbs. Slightly medicinal, but a background player.
    • Finish
      A chocolatey stout note, bitter. It’s hard to describe without putting it in the context of the finish of a stout or a rich, chocolately porter. Long.
