This is a bit unusual in a way that it feels rather naked compared to the standard releases. It is not particularly complex but smoothness and sippability are outstanding, even undiluted. – Rating: 88/100

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

A brilliant combination of fruit and smoke. The PX sherry combines very well with the Lagavulin distillery style. – Rating: 88/100

A very nice peated malt without a doubt, but the rather generic profile lacks some of the depth and richness that previous versions had. – Rating: 85/100

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

The nose is rather generic but very pleasant. On the palate there is a true flavour explosion of peat, aromatic spices and fruit. One of the greats. – Rating: 92/100
