    Nice Lagavulin with more smokyness than all the 12year cask strength bottlings.

    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 298 bottles from cask 5346

    The third edition from our Breath of Islay single cask range, cask no. 5346, distilled in 1992 in an “unnamable” Islay distillery, has produced another glorious “Breath”. Medium gold with hints of amber, this is from an American oak hoggy. The first nose conjures up images of an early-Autumn peat fire in a croft, but all the time, squeaky clean and mineral-like with fresh sea breeze. There is some smoke on the nose, but wait until you add water – now the fire is smouldering, billows of smoke from the ash, and yet, still sweet and fresh. A huge mouthfeel and texture, a chimney full of smoke and a lovely hint of Camomile in the finish. A glorious dram!
