The trouble was it went too quickly!
First purchase through The Whisky Exchange – the items are competitively priced, the checkout process is easy to use, very secure and safely packaged and everything was delivered on time. Recommend using, 5 star quality.
I think is a fantastic whisky, a lite and long finishing, just peaty enough and it still keep the Lagavulin style. Just excellent
I just Love Lagavulin. I find the 16yo Distiller Edition to be one of the best whisky on earth, really. But what the hell is this 8 y/o? I hope I had a bad batch, because my bottle is close to undrinkable. It taste like 100 ppm peat mixed with some engine oil. Absolutly disgusting! It is a shame because I love peaty whisky, I have about 20 different Islay single Malt on my shelf and none of them are so bad.
Personal taste really matters with this one, but you should never depreciate it just because you're not used to scotch from this region. It's sweeter and more mild than the standard 16yo (compare Laphroiag's main market offering to Laphroiag Select Cask, but not quite as sweet and blunt). Extremely approachable even for newcomers to Islay Scotch, there's a gentleness and fresh herbal taste reminiscent of Japanese styles. Finishes long with a smoky but still very clean mint influence, a lot of herbal and fruity flavors for an Islay. This might be the best dram I've ever tasted, let alone secured its place among the best whisky I've ever tried. Dangerously good and infuriating rare, I can't think of anything I've ever had that is measurably better. Give this a try.
