    This baby Lagavulin might as well be brought down to it's 48% by brine. The mood is old tarred boat bottoms, metallic rainwater in a barrel, gasoline, moss, wet granite. Good balance, although it's very much focused in a certain direction.

    Quite fond to this kind of profile, reminds me of some less intense bourbon cask Port Ellen.

      Pepper with sugary barley drink? Medium smoke and peat, lemon, kippers, vanilla. Less peppery than the 200th anniversary 12 year old, and much lesser peat than expected!
    • Taste
      88 88
      More intense than the nose suggested! More smoke and peat, some coal, salty and sweet at the same time. Lemons and some rock sugar at the end
    • Finish
      87 87
      Quite long, with lemon, pepper and some smoke.

    Fresh, slightly smoky, with wonderful cereal sweetness in the mouth - and - no sherry!

      Young Islay south shore. Iodine, medicinal, smoked fish, sea breeze, exhaust fumes, green apples and something quite sweet underneath. Ashes. Olives.

      This is lovely! Though I am not a huge fan of young peaters this one really pleases me. Initially sweet and salty, olives, olive oil, it get´s dry very soon. Ashy.
    • Finish
      88 88
      slightly bitter in the finish but pleasingly so. Ashy. Quite long
