Color
Mahogany
Nose

Sweet, sirupy, oranges, smoke, wet wood, sea and sherry are in a fight.

Taste

Creamy sweet smoke, smoked candy, the sherry is dominating the Lagavulin.

Finish
Medium to long. The PX is not to dominant and gets lost after quite a while. The smoke stays back with a sweet touch.
Comments
A lot of Lagavulin enthusiasts are telling the story of the good old days (in fact the 1980s), when the Lagavulin DE was much more sherryed than the 90s versions. Well, the true part on this story is the PX. The more detailed version is about too much PX. In my opinion it is in fact a fantastic dram, not so much PX as in some versions from the 80s. The 80s versions are worth the try but the gras isn't always greener on the other side. 90s versions (this time the 1991 bottle) are worth their money too (a bargain compared to the prices for an 80s bottle in the year 2015).
Concerning price/performance ratio: 7/10 (2015)

Color
Pale gold
Nose

Coastal but right into the sea. Seaweed, tar,iodine… Nothing is missing. The smoke rises up and releases creamy notes of toffee. Apple loft.

Taste

Voluptuously sweet with that briny dryness in the back.Hint of kippers (with a touch of butter).

Finish

Lingering,smoky.Licorice.Pepper.

Comments

Peat and iodine are not all. There's got to be texture and complexity. And this one has got it all.

Color
Amontillad
Nose

Zuerst dichter, aromatischer und medizinischer Rauch. Danach folgt eine angenehme Sherry-Sueße. Maritime Noten in Form von Seetang folgen.

Taste

Hier merkt man den groeßten Unterschied zum Standard 16y: Der sonst so heftige, medizinische Rauch wird vom ausdrucksstarken PX-Sherry unterdr

Finish

Wie beim 16y nur sueßer.

Comments

Der 16y in Sueßer und komplexer...

Feusi gave this whisky 92 points

Sweet fire flows in the nose, malty sweetness is overtaken by the smoke. Pleasant to drink, beautiful, soft and long lasting.
