Whisky Reviews for Lagavulin Lg3 SMS
9 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.04 points
- This is as raw as Lg2 but not as riotously industrial. Both are pale young spirits, fragile and not very complex, but with a few teaspoons of water this one starts to give up the goods. The smoke here is less greasy than in Lg2, more bonfireish, and there's a young note of oak, but this is lacking some of that boldness that endeared Lg2 to me. Still a very enjoyable bottle.
- A bit pricey but the "elements of Islay" naturally arouse curiosity. Yet this whisky remains a topper. Tasted in the The Green Man (Oostende, Belgium).
- As you could know, is not usual to find a Lagavulin of an indipendent bottler, so we were really curious to try that.
So the final result is delicious, a complex and exasperated dram at the same time.
