  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    soft, intense, grassy, woody peat, then wet and dried seaside herbs with the spray that goes with it.
    orange, tangerine and cooked grapes, sherry well in place, woody also after that feels
    velvety softness that emerges from the glass
    sweet, fruity, fairly fresh peat, then a little liquorice, a little spicy on white pepper, cream of fine almonds and malt, a little honey
    the peat is more animal, meaty and with dried herbs again, the spice is felt more under the tongue, a little bitterness is released.
    finally dark chocolate with a return of creamy, bacon and grassy peat.
    the fruits are on cooked orange and the candied zest in a little burnt, caramelized.
    oily, fruity, even sweet peat, salted caramel, wood, liquorice, all that lasts at the bottom of the glass.

    Slightly better than your usual Lagavulin 16 but not by much... quite weak for a 48%

  3. 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!

  4. 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.

  5. ARDBERG scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    has everything Lagavulin except the omph - 48% is just a little weak

  6. KayMeertens scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    It's nice, but I like the profile of the 1995 Distillers Edition even better. That mineral touch is something that really distinguishes this one from other '95 Lagavulins in my opinion. 88/89.

  7. eselsim scored this whisky 88 points Member Senior

    Well sherried and wood-forward Lagavulin akin to those old style ones
    • Nose
      Balanced sweet smoke and gentle raisins, salted dried fig
    • Taste
      Almondy, malt and wood are well balanced, nice soft grassy peat
    • Finish
      Peat intensifies, brings out those charcoal, burnt meat notes, milk chocolate, dry long finish

  8. Igor_Gudimov scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Great Lag, a bit more interesting than standard 16 due to herbal influence
    • Nose
      89 89
      Intense meaty mentol and vegetal medicinal-iodine peat, with smoked candy bacon note on the back
    • Taste
