  1. dram_on scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    This bottling saved the distillery for me as I was about to totally write-off Lagavulin, but yowza!!! The 12yo is both hands-down, pound-the-table, light-years ahead of the 16yo!

  7. St. Pauli scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    It's a classic with a reason. It's well made, but also well matured. The result is a rather complex and not too heavy Islay dram.
    • Nose
      Peat and coal smoke, vanilla, some mint and camphor. In the beginning, there is crystallized lemon, but this eventually develops towards peach. Finally, there is almond paste. 
    • Taste
      Full and sweet, with a pleasant spicy edge of pepper. It's not that peaty, rather smoky and salty (plain salt, iodine). The fruitiness of peach completes the palate. 
    • Finish
      Long and intense, on wood and bbq smoke, pepper, salted cod, and vanilla cream.

  8. domani scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Harmonious interaction between smoke, alcohol and spice. Wild and yet easy to tame. Great Single Malt - 16.08.2015
    • Nose
      Wonderfully warm smoke, burning match, salty maritime, fishing net in fishing boat, anchovies in olive oil, oregano, smoked bacon
    • Taste
      Musty, salty-maritime, herbal mixture, tart, peppery, alcohol is very well integrated and remains despite cask strength in the background
    • Finish
      Lang

  9. DerDennis! scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Very decent whisky with a pleasant smoke. However, I need some water to tame it.
