A legendary Lagavulin, originally released in 2007 - and it's to be the last fully sherried release, we're told. Boasting 95 points on Whiskyfun, this has become incredibly sought-after.

    Oliver Gark,

    Incredible stuff. Too much in here to decipher. Didn’t know a whisky could get so big yet simultaneously nuanced. I’m not one of those people who can break a the flavour profile down into dozens of things, like leather, tobacco, crem brûlée, and all that stuff. I just know it’s the best dram I’ve ever had. And I’ve had more than I can remember ??

    West Coast Laga Lover,

    Simply the best bottling Lagavulin have ever released and in my opinion even bests the 37yo (which is arguably their second best bottling). You can spend 30 minutes exploring the nose alone: it's that amazing. Everything is just insanely complex and yet it works. The 37 is more subtle and phenomenal, but it's a point or two behind this 21yo. Also, make sure you're looking at the 1985 21yo: the second edition 21yo (1991) is a great whisky, but doesn't hold a candle to this first 21yo. Hard to believe these were about $300 US when released, but the quality of the whisky unfortunately justifies its now insane price.

    MaltMinute,

    Undoubtedly one of the greatest Lagavulins ever. Better than either of the 25s, better than the 30, and second only to the 37 by my humble palate. This is magic in a bottle. It's dreadfully overpriced, but up to $800 max it's a great buy if you can somehow find it for that. On quality alone, it is among the very best from the distillery counting the last 30 years at least.

    Walt Whiskey,

    Wow! Incredible texture and finish. To complex to fully put into words- everyone will get something different depending on what they’re thinking of. It’s as if Will Wonka made it in collaboration with Lagavulin. Maintains great depth of flavour with addition of water and opens out to reveal even more.

    Whiskeysmyth,

    This one is all about balance and the layers that are uncovered with just a drip or two of water. Sublime depth and finish. It stays with you for so long. If I had more liquid assets I would have seeked out and acquired a few more of this liquid asset.
