This expression takes an epic dram and tries to improve it.
Nose: Dusty, smokey, buttery, peaty. Big powerful flavours combining to make a fabulous nosing experience. There is a salty seaweed tang under ripe cherries and dates.
On first sip you can tell it is a Lagavulin. The wonderful smoke flows around the mouth but compared to the standard 16yo it is slightly lighter. The normal strong flavours make way for a more subtle smoke and peat that marries well with the fruits. The sherry is there but it takes a subtle role to complement the salty smoke. I can taste molasses and raisins with a nuts.
The finish is long, sweet and smokey. A really wonderful dram.
