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.
