Nose
Immediate complex phenolics: dried crab shells, rock pools, wet seaweed, Dutch salted liquorice, woodsmoke, chili, barbecued peppers and in time engine oil.
Palate
The oily quality coats the tongue. Not just about the smoke but a welling up of languorous, rich fruits which mix with shore, violet, laurel (bog myrtle) Ever-changing.
Finish
Ripe, long and complex.
Comment
As good a Lagavulin as I've tasted. Hie thee to Islay!

Nose
Delightfully sooty, oily and salty. A steam train on a coastal railway. A touch of blackcurrant too.
Palate
A heady mix of sweet and full berry fruit, sooty smoke and rampant peat.
Finish
Full, almost creamy and with soot and fruit.
Comment
If you're a sucker for rich fruity peated whisky this won't disappoint you.
