"If anyone has noticed a slight change in Lagavulin, they would be right. The peat remains profound but much more delicate than before, while the oils appear to have receded. A different shape and weight dispersal for sure. But the sky-high quality remains just the same." - Jim Murray
Tasting Note: Deep amber gold. Elements of peat and smoke are complemented by touches of seaweed. Robust and full with exceptional balance, smoothness, slightly sweet quality and dryness. Long and peaty, with pleasing salt and seaweed qualities.
