Speciality Drinks Ltd Lagavulin Tasting Notes

Posted: March 6, 2015 in Lagavulin, Scotch Whisky H-Z

Elements of Islay LG1 56.8%

Bourbon/ Tasted: Sept 2014

A classic ‘vulin nose of robust apricot and medicinal herbs. There is a pleasant background of milky oak but the spirit character dominates. 

The palate is full and soft with apricot and citrus fruit along with hints of burnt wood, tar, smoked kippers and medicinal peat. Whoa! That’s an intense middle. It definitely blows the cobwebs away! Very mouth-watering finish with lingering dusty peat. 

Water emphasises the citrus – orange and Satsuma and brings out the gentle saltiness and a touch of iodine. The palate has become quite dusty and spicy with gentle smoky peat
