    It's
    everything I love about Lagavulin 16, bold and balanced smoke backed up with
    elegant complexity, plus lovely delicate sherry notes intermingled through the
    whole experience.
    • Nose
      sherry
      & honey sweetness, rich smoke, floral smooth caramel.new wood & cereal.
    • Taste
      smooth sweet smokey dried fruits. Raisins and oak.
    • Finish
      lingering warming sweet smoke, like the feeling of a warm
      fire on a fall evening, in a dram. Leaves a pleasant dry fruity mouthfeel. Splash
      of water: draws out the sherry and smoke, brings out fresh fruit, apples in the
      nose. Palate sweetens up on the front, mellows out the smoke. Finish feels more
      fruity as well.

  4. PRV scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A tide-exposed seabed, burnt caramel, candied fruit, and a bit of engine oil.
    The taste is sweet with sea tones, smoked prunes, walnuts, honey.
    The aftertaste is long, peaty, spicy-honey.
