Whisky Reviews for Lagavulin Lg5 SMS

20 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.45 points

  1. Segens scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    A classic Islay Profile with a nice Nose, great taste but only an average/too metalic finish. All in all a good but not must have dram!
    • Nose
      Classic peat nose well balanced
    • Taste
      Sweet (honeymelon), a bit spicy due to the alcohol (pepper) and citric

      Well balance
    • Finish
      The finish is quite long but a little bit metallic and bitter. Not too much but could be better

  2. Calmar scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    An excellent young Lagavulin with nehily rubber influence, powerful, juicy, deep, nimble, to which words here - everything about him has long been known, a hurricane of positive emotions in every throat.
    • Nose
      An open, powerful, first wave of rubber - a fresh conveyor belt, new tires, a cordite cord; in the background smoke and peat - a smoky tree, coals of a bonfire, smoked to the hardness of a skin on fat, the rubber gradually weakens, moving back.
    • Taste
      Smoky-sweet, rubber - gernite, a new gas mask; smoked products, coal, creamy sweetness, everything is very dense, rich, savory.
    • Finish
      Sweet-coal, smoky, burnt paper, dry peat, lemon peel, grapefruit cake, burned candy.

  3. ctu scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Not too complex but pleasant, powerful refill flavors.
    • Nose
      Fresh. Citruses, salted minerals, smoke and peat, camphor and fruits.
    • Taste
      Oily. Citruses, apple and orange jam. Smoke and tar.
    • Finish
      Long, smoky, spicy.

  4. lapinbilly did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    • Nose
      The nose is on mineral peat, pepper, lemon and a hint of fruit.
    • Taste
      On the palate it is salt, peat and spices. Alcohol is well integrated.
    • Finish
      The finish is long dry and peppery the smoke stays long.

  5. Brinker scored this whisky 84 points Member Senior

    Nose comes out a bit dull, but the taste is great and true to Lagavulin.

  7. Donwaldorf scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Still a young Lagavulin IB who, in the tradition of JW and TBWC, is rather successful. The profile is very classic and not surprising but ask us something else?
    • Nose
      The first fragrances are very mineral on the eggshell, flint and especially iron (Fe). Of course we will not escape the rule Lagavulin with this tip fruity / lemony. All mix nicely in peat oil.
    • Taste
      A "perfect" attack, neither too bright nor too watery. We are in the continuity of the nose on spices, licorice, iron and peat oil. To this is added saline notes very pleasant.
    • Finish
      Nice length on peaty malt, oak, salt, brioche / bread and chocolate. A little pastry chef who is not to displease me.

  8. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Very well executed. Softer than a "classic" Lagavulin. Enthusiasm 4/5
    Whisky n ° 1291
    • Nose
      Intense, salty, peppery, maritime and vegetal at a time. Lemon notes. Some fruits from the bourbon barrel emerge, especially pear. Malt comes to join the party, with a nice presence. After the fruit salad taken at the seaside, there remains a feeling of finesse and delicacy.
      With water, a touch of white chocolate.
    • Taste
      Peat, salt, fruit and malt are found here with gentleness and intensity. With water, sweet piquant spices.
    • Finish
      Supple, with a smoky aftertaste.
