My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Dark amber
Nose: Dominant spices over wafting smoke, cloves, nutmeg, freshly crushed cardamom, then some dried fruits join in.
Palate: Medium strength peat, toffee, dried fruit, bergamote, 99% dark chocolate, toasted nuts, mixed oriental spices, mild pepper.
Finish: Very long, smoky and spicy.
Overall: This Lagavulin is virtually blasting with oriental spices, the fruit stays in the background here. An exquisite whisky that succeeds in combining boldness and gentleness.
Rating: 92/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
