  1. Rom scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    Nose well peaty, ash, candied orange. Oily texture, a lot of ash, charcoal, iodine, a little caramel, the mouth is salty. Long salty finish with flavors of ashes and fish. Very spirit driven, difficult to detect the sherry cask.A straight and well done dram, enjoyable when we love peat. Thanks Tomy for the sample!

  2. tomy63 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    light amber color, very nice well typed nose Laga sherry, peat, iodine, algae, tobacco, ash, chocolate, orange, soy sauce, level Feis Island. Beautiful attack on the palate, light, fine, with a thick texture, on the aromas of the nose. In the end, the 48% are felt, it lacks a little punch. Finale of medium length, on ash, spices, chocolate, slight bitterness.

  4. Dre73 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Very nice Lagavulin. In the nose it promisses some fruits, which I did not find later on, but still enough nice flavours to really enjoy this one.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Peatsmoke, ash, tobacco, as usual. But then: Prunes, and when it develops, lighter fruits come through: Citrus, oranges. And spicy, cinnamon, and some coffee even.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Sal ammoniac at first, licorice. Sweet smoke, ash, honey, some pepper, pretty strong. The fruits from the nose seem to have disappeared, but the dram itself is very nice balanced and attractive still.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Still some pepper, sweet smoke. Strong and full, pretty long, honey, and the coffee is back now, with some chocolate.

  5. schengel10 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A great and very good Lagavulin ...
    • Nose
      distinct sherry flavors, only moderate smoke;
    • Taste
      full, spicy on, plenty of sherry, a slightly "earthy" note, mouth-filling, stimulating the mucus;
    • Finish
      long-lasting, harmonious, pleasant finish;

  6. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    From top to bottom, a great malt, very pleasant and pleasing, great combination of flavors, even if the sherry barrel does not appear too clearly in appearance
    • Nose
      Incredibly creamy, smoked fish, salty smoke, some chocolate, grated lemon zest, tobacco, totally oily and supple, pleasant
    • Taste
      also very creamy in the mouth, starts sweet, then comes ashy smoke, salt, mineral, greasy, some cinnamon, great drinking strength, the sherry cask comes through in the end a bit through
    • Finish
      The chocolate also resonates here, becoming a bit drier, oak, the smoke is still there but not too dominant, long-lasting and warming
