Double matured in Pedro cask wood to magically accentuate and deepen every aspect of the intense, rich character of Lagavulin. Distilled 2001. Bottled 2017
Full bodied and rich in texture. Intense peat and vanilla. A raisin sweetness checks the smoke. Iodine-edged peat and crisp, toasty malt. Satisfying and enticing. A clear, grassy malt, then the peat lands – smoke filling the mouth. A very salty tang, the middle offers coffee, vanilla and fruit. Incredibly long, even by Islay standards. Fruit, peat and long-lasting oak. Very chewable.
Very thick and rich. A massive mouthful of malt and Sherry with good fruity sweetness, but also a wonderful sweetness. Big, powerful peat and oak. Finish: Long, spicy finish, figs, dates, peat smoke, vanilla.
