My Tasting Notes:
Nose: Fireplace, fresh sea air, wet leaves, porridge, water reveals rubber notes.
Palate: Cereals, peat, mixed citrus fruit, ginger, tropical fruits emerge with water.
Finish: Long, farmy and smoky.
Overall: It’s not really a bad whisky, but I think it was bottled too young. The farmy notes are just too strong for my taste. There is a reason why the standard Lagavulin is bottled at 16 years.
Rating: 81/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
