  4. Thermidor scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    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.
