  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    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!
    • Nose
      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. 
    • Taste
      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.
    • Finish
      This continues in the medium long finish.

    • Nose
      Smoke with dried fruits and strawberry jam.
    • Taste
      Smoke, sweetness, strong, cool, citrus with dark chocolate, rather dry.
    • Finish
      Smoky, slightly salty, peppery, dry long-lasting finish.
