Double matured in Pedro Ximinez cask wood, this is a mellow Lagavulin, peat-rich, sweet and very more-ish.
in brief… Powerful, peat-rich, sweet and very more-ish.
in a sentence… A really distinctive and distinguished dram, full of peat and brine, while the sherry wood naturally has a big say. A more mellow Lagavulin, not quite as deep or intense as the 16 year old.
An absorbing intensity of peat-reek plus considerable vanilla. A raisiny sweetness keeps the smoke in check. The peat has the gentlest of iodine edges and the malt is crisp and roasty. A satisfying aroma – significantly rich and enticing.
Sweet and fat on the mouth with very clear, almost grassy, malt showing for a second or two before the peat launches into a no-holds-barred attack, smoke filling every crevice of the mouth There is a very salty tang at one point and the middle offers coffee and vanilla plus just an outline of fruit.
