Nez puissant en tourbe, patte Lagavulin identifiable immédiatement. Très poivré et frais. Avec plus tard des céréales (du pain, même) et du cuir. En bouche, riche, tourbé, charnu et un peu sucré aussi (merci le sherry). La finale est longue, très salée, avec une note de cuir. Je trouve que le sherry est bien trop discret par rapport au 1994.


Enthousiasme 3/5

Nose

Soft peat, burnt wood, soot, herbal notes. Some sweetness in there, sticky sweetness like the sugar coating on dried fruits (prunes, raisins). Clean green fruit note. With time the darkness mellows and the sweeter subtler elements come forward. Strong cherry note. Seaweed and salty coastal notes more prominent with time. 

Taste

peat and ash. Oily palate which helps carry the flavour. Little wood spice in there, slight smoked fish notes. Big hints of raisins on the palate.

Finish

Dirty with ash and smokey charred wood chips

Comments

Can't help but feel this dram loses so much with the lower Abv.

Nose

Menthol, Rauch, Sherryaromen (Orange, Rosinen) miteinander eingebunden. Betörende Nase. Geräucherter Speck. Toffee. Minze. Schokolade. Oregano.

Taste

süß, Rauch, Salz, Pfeffer, verbranntes Toffee… lecker. Algen. Cremig. Geröstete Nüsse. Zitronensaft.

Finish

Der Geräucherte Speck schwebt im ganzen Mundraum, das Salz bleibt auf der Zunge zurück und all das ist mit Ahornsirup gesüßt.

Comments

Nachgetragen von Juni 2017

Süffig, balanciert, mit der Art von Rauch, die ich am liebsten hab. Speckig, aromatisch, mit erfrischenden und Süßen Noten, um den rauchigen Charakter abzurunden. 88/100

Beautiful sweet smokey laga smell. The pallet is just to flat and then again that sweet smokey finish. There is not enough body, otherwise it would score higher...

Lichte rook, in de neus als smaak. Erg zacht, maar uiteindelijk een zwakke tot matige whisky in zijn geheel. Blijft niet lang hangen, sterker nog, hij heeft nauwelijks een afdronk. Alcoholpercentage had hoger gemoeten bij deze editie.

[July, 2016]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 75 Euro in March, 2015.

In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this 90.  My notes state another great DE from Lagavulin.

There is no accounting for taste...
