    Joe Cassady,

    Just arrived today and so we built a fire in the backyard and sampled it. Excellent in all respects. Not too rough on the front end and a nice lingering fruit on the back. Just the right touch of smoke. The nose on opening the bottle was a nice foreshadowing of what was to come.

    A wild whisky that feels very vibrant on the palate. The nose is not very different from the 2017 expression with several citrus fruits and mint dominating. The palate is a little sweeter but still very fresh. I can’t think of a whisky even remotely similar to this, maybe it’s just me but this is like heaven at sunset.

    Timeless Tim,

    Oh my word! I was given a Christmas present of a sizeable sample from my Ain;'t no foolin' Lagavulin Ambassador friend. It's definitely a much sweeter Lag 12 - Almost the Distillers Edition, cask strength! Amplified fruit and farmyard on the nose along with what I misread Billy's notes for "Sweat peat" . That'll do! A little more surprise complexity on the palate than I remember. A wee bit richer. Tarry chocolate and...DAMN! My Sample is finished! Gone! A slightly short finish, though the slightly sweet ( and yes, Billy - minerally and mentholated ) hints linger on the Islay breeze! Well, I HAD to order a bottle from you....a Christmas after lunch treat. 5 1/2 points. OK, folks. That's a dram you owe Colin...
