Review and Tasting

Sampled on 18/01/2017

Appearance

Clear, deep golden amber with slight olive-hue.

Aroma

Vanilla fudge, caramel and white chocolate with classic Lagavulin notes of peat, smoked salty fish and newsprint. Faint red apple and zesty orange, the latter more pronounced with water.

Taste

Peaty with earthy smokiness, charcoal, salty seaweed and chocolate. Water amplifies smokiness, bready barley, chocolate, vanilla and creamy fudge.

Aftertaste

Smoked vanilla fudge with attractive earthiness and charcoal.

Overall

Brilliantly expressive, bold and yet with subtle nuances of flavour such as orange and chocolate. A not to be missed opportunity to acquire a very collectible bottle at a very attractive price while also giving to some very deserving Islay charities.
