  2. ASWhisky scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    I like them indeed
    • Nose
      das schöne angebrannte Holz vom Lagafeuer (Rauch)
      die salzige Seeluft
      eine helle Sherrynote
      mit Karamell, gelben Früchten, Minze und Waldmeister verfeinert
      eine helle edle Nase mit schönen subtilen Noten 90 Punkte
    • Taste
      gelbe Kirschen, Waldmeister und Schokolade
      Tanine von frischem Holz
      etwas bitter im Rachen
      Hustensaft (phenol)
      Schokopulver
      im Mund war der Alkohol nicht gut eingebunden
      und die edle Nase konnte nicht angeschlossen werden 84 Punkte
    • Finish
      lang
      holzige Schokonote, gelbe Kirschen
      etwas Malzsüße mischt sich zwischen Holz und Schokopulver
      Tabak
      in der ferne Lagafeuer (Rauch)
      der Abgang kann an die Nase wieder etwas anschließen 88 Punkte

    A pretty good Lagavulin, with a very discreet sherry influence and a flavor profile close to the 12 YO CS

  5. pilgrim77 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    The nose isn`t quite as complex as some of the other recent sherry cask Lagavulin expressions I`ve tried (and it definitely needs a touch of water and gentle hand-warming to reveal itself), but the taste and finish are really lovely. Good price for a single cask Laga, especially as they now seem to be moving away from single casks for their `special` releases (Feis & Jazz bottles).

    http://www.weinkenner.de/2012/zwei-aktuelle-insel-malts-arran-devils-punch-bowl-und-lagavulin-feis-ile-2012-24696/ Color: white wine
    Nose: Salty lemon, smoky with vanilla, slightly pungent, rather thin.
    Taste: Amazingly creamy, otherwise like nose (salt, lemon, vanilla), slightly smoky, some peat and white pepper, bitter note (unripe apple).
    Finish: Fairly long and dry, creamy vanilla, lemon, strong peaty, very smoky, quite tasty without the bitter taste.
    Note: This creaminess and the great finish are the best!
    88 points (nose: 86 / taste: 88 / finish: 90)
    Price: about 200 euros
