Lg5 - Elements of Islay Reviews
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.

A must for Lagavulin fans. Powerful dram !!!
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.
