Member Ratings and Notes
Tasted after many full flavored cask strength whiskies, this one seemed thin. Perhaps I owe it a retry.
Oh, this is delicious. The peat is tamed significantly as compared with the Lag 16, but makes for what is overall a more balanced whisky. Smooth, charcoal, smoky, with a slightly sweet, mid-length finish.
Lighter than the Lagavulin 16 I love so dearly. It's like the volume has been turned down. Smooth, easy, good. But not powerful or especially memorable.
Good, and more of a straight smokiness than traditional Lag. This is good, and a welcome diversion with a traditional Lagavulin taste, but it's lacking the greatness and dimension in other Lagavulins.
