  3. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      When panning in the glass, a beautiful, oily wreath forms. Strong, slightly phenolic smoke. Like a breakfast cereal with cereals and raisins. Somehow dark with some caramel. A sweet, maritime fruit note is added. Smoked ham is spreading.
    • Taste
      First, the colleague comes to me only with a bit of bitter smoke. The cereal and caramel is here. Now the maritime, sweetish fruit notes come from the background. Dark red berries and dark chocolate. Oily mouthfeel.
    • Finish
      Medium long to long with licorice and sweet wood-burning smoke.

  7. Alex scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Still has the typical Laga profile and complexity, but lost some of the body and richness of the previous versions

  8. [2stoned] aKu scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    A fantastic whisky that makes you want more from the start. I always like to have a barbecue in the glass. This whisky is a peat monster that delivers much more than just peat and "stench". He is beautiful multi-faceted and strong character with a good PLV. Must have tasted, on the outside you can smoke nothing, then hands off.
    • Nose
      sweet, strong smoke, slightly phenolic, trace of herbal liqueur with a dash of cough syrup, seaweed and beach, develops into a slightly salty ham smoked over sweet wood
    • Taste
      strong, full, round, supple soft oiliness, sweet with light spice, smoke, earthy / peaty
    • Finish
      long, sweet, old leather, slightly salty with dark chocolate
