  2. markjedi1 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    A very clean, but young Lagavulin, that goes down dangerously easy.
    • Nose
      The nose starts fairly soft on some vermiculate wood, wet autumn leaves, lemon juice, aniseed and sweet & sour peat. Only a bit of smoke, actually.
    • Taste
      The body is very light with some sea salt and vanilla, white fruit and olives. Ashes kick in big time, but it does seem quite young (well, it is) on apples and some soot. In all honesty, this is actually quite flat. 
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long and somewhat sweet.

  3. Bishlouk scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Between the Ardmore, the Croftengea, and this Laggan Mill, all three tasted the same day; I think they are very similar: young, easy peat, malty. Very similar. Nevertheless, I find this Laggan Mill less malty than the other two, and more lemony; so I like it more.
    • Nose
      Slightly camphorated smoke, vanilla malt, yellow apple, and a hint of lemon.
    • Taste
      Easy, vanilla, sweet, but also a little tart. Smoke, non-aggressive, is always present. A hint of lemon.
    • Finish
      Average. The lemon smoke settles down the throat.
