  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Powerful nose in peat, Lagavulin paw identifiable immediately. Very peppery and fresh. With later cereals (even bread) and leather. In the mouth, rich, peaty, fleshy and a little sweet too (thank you sherry). The finish is long, very salty, with a note of leather. I think sherry is way too quiet compared to 1994.
    Enthusiasm 3/5

  2. hs305 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    [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.
