Smoke with dried fruits and strawberry jam.
Smoke, sweetness, strong, cool, citrus with dark chocolate, rather dry.
Smoky, slightly salty, peppery, dry long-lasting finish.
- Ah… a classic, like I said. More sherry influence than I remember. And indeed: this is a must-have. That reminds me… off to the store!
The nose is powerful and soft at the same time with loads of medicinal elements and peat, sea salt and more maritime elements. I am transported straight to the rocky coast of Islay, where a feisty wind almost blows me from my socks. But there is also a doused wood fire, vanilla, caramel and oranges on this lovely, warm nose.
It rolls silky soft across the tongue, caressing your taste buds with surprisingly sweet notes from caramel, oranges and dark fruit. Obviously some wonderful, classic Lagavulin traits kick in as well: iodine, salt, peat and smoke.
This continues in the medium long finish.
