A lovely drop. Sweet and salty, just like a kiss on the lips from a lusty mermaid!

Absolutely sublime. Strongly smokey and maritime, yet balanced, with a delicious sweetness throughout. I could keep nosing this for hours on end. The flavour intensifies and opens out when it is allowed to warm up to room temperature and breath a little.

My new favourite Islay malt, the perfect amount of peat without dominating too much. I think it has a lovely long finish, with some subtle sweetness.

@scc: That's the batch number. Lagavulin doesn't really vary much by batch these days (and L15X seems to be a recent number) so it doesn't mean all that much unless you're a collector. Unfortunately we don't know how to decode it.

This is amazing whiskey. Have been drinking it for ever. Can some one answer my question about the coding on the bottle of Lagavulin. What does the code L15X00371877 means. I have tried to call the distillery but no one picks up the phone. Thanks for the help. SCC

Without doubt a superb malt whisky but it is definately one for people who like a peaty malt. You will either love it or hate it there does not seem to be an in between position. Its a great sin that some of it ends up in blended whiskys

Stunning. In my opinion the best you can buy in a supermarket. The finish just goes on and on.

its rich complex taste justifies the price

Not bad. Complex but for me just too smoky and peated. I prefer sweeter, lighter speyside malts but interesting to try. Definitely quite unique.

I like everything about this whiskey except the salt. I don't mind if I notice it, but when I first tried this, it was too salty. I may need another tasting to be sure, but I may just stick with Ardbeg and Laphroaig.

Wonderful aroma and plenty of smoky subltleness; One of the finest i have experienced

Wonderfully elegant diesel fuel of a malt. I can feel the salt spray on my face with each sip.
