Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by The Whisky Exchange

    Nose: Milk chocolate, berry fruit, orange and lots of smoke – maritime peat and burning logs.

    Palate: Savoury peat and oak notes meet dark chocolate, dried fruit and coffee with a pinch of pepper.

    Finish: Dark and ashy, with coffee balanced by singed raisins.

    I love the Lagavulin 96, wish I could get more. A 94 would be even better.

    The 19 year is up there for some of the best Islay whiskeys i''ve ever had. Soft and peaty, its like lying on a cloud coated in velvet. It''s not at all intrusive on the nose with smokey notes not over powering its peaty, cedar character. This is one Whiskey that is truly worth saving and sharing among good friends.

    I have been drinking this for many years & also many other fine malts & truth be told, it's my "Go to " bottle for the ultimate flavour of what a Good Islay whisky is all about. I may not be very articulate to go into details of the aroma or taste profile, but at the end of it all, when you're sipping the Laga "DE " you've peace of mind & satisfaction of a contented man. cheers .
