Review and Tasting
Sampled on 20/09/2013
(bottle 0086) Clear, bright golden.
Creamy, nutty, toffee with Lagavulin’s signature creosote note and faint seaweed.
Sweet, slightly honeyed palate. A splash of water opens this up wonderfully to reveal balanced smoky peat, fruit and salt.
Salty, peaty finish.
