Review door Lagavulin

« Deze review is ook beschikbaar in het Engels »
Kleur

Golden Treacle

Geur

Intense peat and vanilla. A raisin sweetness checks the smoke. Iodine-edged peat and crisp, roasty malt.

Smaak

Sweet and luscious; a clear, grassy malt, then the peat attacks, smoke filling the mouth. A very salty tang at one point; the middle offers coffee and vanilla with a glimmer of fruit.

Afdronk

Incredibly long, even for Islay. Fruit, peat and long-lasting oak. Very chewable and “more-ish”.

Notitie

Each Distillers Edition expression undergoes a second (or ‘double’) maturation in casks that have previously held a fortified wine.

A really distinctive and distinguished dram, full of peat while the Pedro Ximinez sherry wood naturally has a big say; A more mellow Lagavulin, not quite as deep or intensely flavoured as the 16 year old.
