Description

The distillery say this pale gold cask strength Lagavulin is bursting with intense distillery character.

Tasting Notes

Nose
Distillery: Powerful smouldering peat smokiness on a cleansing, oiled base, with the smell of the sea in the background. Complex lighter notes lie within, among them citrus zest, fresh mint and tropical fruits. Add water, and iodine-rich cleanness combines with smoke, to be altogether appetising.
Taste
Smoothly oily with an exquisitely powerful taste, first sweet and firm, with strong saltiness, then drying and tangy. A rush of simple notes: salt and vinegar on chips wrapped in paper: honey, mints: wax: oil lamps: fresh wood. With water sweet, smoky and salty, with citrus fruit.
Finish
Distillery:  The long, spicy and smoky finish is intensely sweet, then deeply pungent and warming, with a lingering dryness.
