    Review and Tasting

    Sampled on 13/09/2013

    Appearance

    Clear, deep golden.

    Aroma

    Delicately peaty with Lagavulin’s signature creosote-like peaty notes and subtle pear drops.

    Taste

    Rich honeyed sweetness with smoky creosote. A splash of water tames but still leaves a huge dram with seaweed, faint iodine and pear fruit. Be careful not to add too much water or this spectacular dram will die and become very ordinary.

    Aftertaste

    Delightfully peaty finish.
