  2. Archer scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Just strong, the 12 CS.
    • Nose
      Cold smoke, but fresh and citric sweet. Slightly rainy tar and gum abrasion. Not a bit snappy, rather gallant and inviting, while modestly concealing the power that is in him.
    • Taste
      The sweet smoke from the nose, it comes directly to the tongue. He is strong, but not nearly as strong as the 58% suspect. Wonderful, though (because?) Undiluted. Mildly smoked fish, tar, seaweed, salt, pepper, machine oil - everything is there. In addition, always tart sweetness of lemons, sometimes grapefruit.
    • Finish
      Long and dry, ash flakes from the campfire (wood and peat soil), lemon sorbet and slightly peppery.

    [July, 2003]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 65 Euro in November, 2002.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 a clean and flawless "naked" Lagavulin.

  5. Whisky scored this whisky 91 points Specialist

    N: nice peat reminds me of 70's Ardbeg or caol ila from about 1980. For me it is a bit more difficult to get under the peat.
    T: after the peat silky soft, some honey, pepper, here also some firs, a little bit groundy
    F: nice bitter, pepper and and there is some citrus hanging, fresh spicy I would say

  6. Feusi scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Enormously powerful Lagavullin. Spicy, peaty with a nice smoke and some bitter herbs in the heavy body. Should be diluted with water to produce better oaky notes.
