  1. domani scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    After many years, once again a bottle opened and emptied. I remember the smoke being a bit more intense, but it's not too bad. Still find the new, modern profile appealing. It was fun and occasionally reminded me of the beginning of my whisky journey. It's just a classic - 08/18/2022

  5. KB201 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

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