The greatest Islay dram. Don’t ever be without it.
The nose isn't too strong, but it smells a tad fruity. When drunk neat, the initial taste is fairly sweet, again it is almost fruity. Then the smoke sets it...i normally am ok with smoky whiskies, but this was not only strong smoke, but it was a bit acrid. Not my favourite after-taste even though it initially went down smoothly. It then mellows out and becomes almost like caramel. I then tried it with a splash of room temp water and this totally transformed it. The initial fruity taste became more intense and the acrid smoky nature became more denuded. With water, this was a great whisky and quite unique. Recommended to try if you like smoky whiskies and definately better with a bit of water!
Entertainment in a glass. Personally my favourite peated Islay malt. From pouring to empty glass it is an absolute joy. Firstly the oilyness. After swirling the whisky around the glass, the legs take an age to form. Next the nosing. Peat, oil, complexity, On the palate smoke is immediate, but not intense like other Islays. It's complexity for me is baffling, and that is the joy. There's sweetness, smoothness, smoke, spirit, and long after the finish I have cigar tobacco. Congratulations Lagavulin. A masterpiece. Will always have this to hand.
If you like smoke this boy's for you, astonishing drink well worth the money
The most incredible tasting smoky scotch I have ever had in my life. Goes well with steak and smoky cheddar cheese. Be sure to savor the flavor
