Lagavulin single cask

Postby recordmeister » Mon Jun 04, 2007 1:59 pm

Woo! My 1st post. Hello world!

Right, my mate has come back from the Islay festival with the Lagga Single Cask bottling for me. I'm picking it up this week (assuming easyjet didn't smash it on the way home).

Has anyone tasted it? Any tasting notes out there on it?

Thanks

Yes, I will do.

Oh, my mum is from Bergen! I kind of support Brann but my heart is firmly with my English team.

Takk!

Tasted it, as well as the 21 YO that will be released around October.
It is from a refill sherry cask and tasting notes will be produced very soon.
To give you a very rough idea, in terms of flavours it is between the 12 YO and the 16 YO, very clean, peaty and clean. Very pleasant to drink, lighter than the 16 YO.

The 21 YO we got came from a single sherry cask and the final batch will be a vatting of a few additional casks of the same quality.
In any case, the 21 YO was really good and I will buy a few bottles when it come out. My partner personally preferred the 14 yo, less sherried.

The tasting notes for the 14 YO and the 21 should be published on my website soon.

cheers
