Lagavulin Distillers Edition (2020 Release)
Peated Single Malt — Islay, Scotland
Tasted December 25, 2021
Nose: Obvious Lagavulin peat and smoke, lighter floral notes that elevate this from the 16, sweetness plays off the oak, salty sea spray without the fishy-ness Nose after swirl: Caramel and ethanol come out above the smoke, much sweeter Pallete: Medium-thick mouthfeel, that Lagavulin campfire smoke comes through easily, surprisingly spicy for a 43%, medicinal floral notes like a fresh mint straight from the garden (thank u Amari for that note) Finish: not really dry at all, smoky mint comes through in the finish... doesn't change too much from the pallete.
