    Cold fruity peat on the nose, intense but not too strong or overwhelming. Cinnamon, milk chocolate, tin canned fruit cocktail, in fact really quite metallic - all in all really nice and smooth. The palate arrives sweet and bitter - only after a short while it become slightly alcoholic and then on the long finish sweet and sour. There is licorice (not the sweet kind) and barbecue sauce. The general taste is briny and fruity sweet with a very mature and prominent peat. Quite an interesting dram. For my personal taste it is a bid to rough around the edges but I can definitely see how it appeals to Lagavulin fans. But that’s the thing - I reckon you need to be a fans of this very unique taste to fully admire it. I personally can’t really approach it - I like the initial nose and and the first arrival but in the end the whole experience is a bid to bitter and the peat style isn’t for me. Too smokey and cold ash-flavored. While it is deep and rich I miss complexity and unity - everything floats away from each other.

    Lagavulin Distillers Edition 4/508 Distilled 2013 Bottled 2019 Nose: white grapefruit, dark chocolate, burned sugar, very mild wet ash Appearance: Color - bourbon, thin tears in glass Mouth: raspberry on back of tongue salt on the sides and center of the tongue, just a hint of smoke, modestly peaty. Oak for certain, not much on the sherry notes as expected. Heat like from white pepper, and slight clove Finish: not too long but has some vanilla, salt water, very faint Lagavulin smoked meat - that leaves quickly. It’s probably a good entry point for those new to Islay. I found it a bit weak, but’s good every day/every one type scotch. Probably will not buy again, but would recommend to a new Islay explorer. I’ll stay with 16, or Ardbeg Uigeadail.

    Where to start? Tastes just like our regularly beloved Lagavulin 16, except you will get an extra layer of vanilla sweetness added to the complexity!! 5/5
