    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

    Islay Malt 8 yo 2007/2015 (53.1%, Sansibar, S Spirit Shop, bourbon, 120 bottles)  The label tells us it’s from Islay’s south coast, so it’s either L., L., or A. Colour: white wine. Nose: sweet and bonbon-fruity at first nosing, which, in my book, suggests Lagavulin. But there’s also an earthy, gentiany side in the background, which would rather suggest Ardbeg in my book. It’s a wee bit bandage-y as well, but not medicinal enough to suggest Laphroaig, although I don’t think Laphroaig’s recent batches have been very medicinal. Well if it’s Ardbeg, it’s a slightly Lagavuliny one, while if it’s Lagavulin, it’s a pretty Ardbeggy one. Look where that's got us! With water: crikey, some medicinal notes! Mouth (neat): yeah, again, it starts sweet and creamy like Lagavulin, with a bit of tar, while having this more intense coastal saltiness as well. Oh well oh well. With water: oh well oh well oh well. What’s sure is that it’s excellent. Finish: same. The sweetness is troubling, but there’s a lot of salt remaining on your lips. Comments: very good young peaty malt. Please do not tell me it is Laph…SGP:357 - 87 points.
