      Much weaker than Lg11 with hints of brine, iodine, and dried squid. Then there were wet hay, pickled vegetables and a bit of raw carrots, slowly surrounded by campfire smoke. After a sip you could find some steamed white sugar sponge.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Vegetative peat, strong burnt wood, seirogan, sugarcane peel, more and more moss and raw wax gourd. The greens taste strengthened rapidly together rubber and leather.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Leather shoes, smoke, rubber tyres and some muddy beetroots. Dried fish popped up with again hay, burnt meat and a few slices of radish.

    Notes by producer;

    Cask details;
    This bottling is a marriage of two ex-bourbon barrels from Lagavulin distillery, distilled in 2007 and aged for more than 14 years. This dram boasts savoury, meaty smoke, helpings of balancing spice and a floral accent.

    Tasting Notes;

    NOSE
    Initially, maple-smoked bacon appears with heady wood spice. Fresh lilies appear, along with chewy caramel sweets.

    PALATE
    Runny honey marries with barbecued beef jerky. Pastrami seasoning brings some warming spice, accompanied by more floral notes.

    FINISH
    Pleasant smoke carries on for a while, with a touch of clove spice.
