Customer Rating
Lg whiskies are known for their meaty style. Nosing it is like frying smoky bacon, while the palate gives you all the oily peat you would expect, balanced with a touch of sweet fruit. Not for the faint hearted but celebrating the true character of this classic distillery, Lg5 is everything we have come to expect from the Elements of Islay range – Islay in a bottle.
...TWE’s Lg5 is today’s must if you ask me. 91 points –  Serge Valentin, whiskyfun.com

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Rocky

    Nose: An unexpected flinty minerality, backed up by smoke, ash and tar.

    Palate: Creamy in texture and warming in nature. Poached pear manages to fight its way through the ash and tar.

    Finish: Drying yet with a refreshing sensation reminiscent of menthol left at the roof of the mouth.

    Comment: This has an earthier style that I normally associate with Ireland. It’s intense in its smokiness, but with elegance that will appeal to both Islay fans and those who want an introduction to the island.

    Perfect. Angry sea in a bottle The nose promises rich smokiness and peat and, for once, I was not disappointed. You can almost taste the sea salt, tarry bitterness brings the levels of pleasure that's almost painful.

    A worthy addition to the Lg series. Fans of Lagavulin''s 12yo should be at home here. I do think Lg2 was the best one so far but 3,4 and 5 are all good too.
