Nose
Big hit of TCP, salty aromas of a harbour-side and a little rubber. Oak appears through the bonfire smoke, then light caramel and some vineous notes.
Palate
More bonfires, oily peat and rich oak. Balanced by slightly burnt, caramelised sugar, earthy with fruity notes, dried apricots and prunes.
Finish
Rich and oily. Medicinal, smoky peat lingers.
Comment
Very easy to drink at this strength. A fabulous, deep and smoky whisky.

Nose
Plum pudding, dried fruit, black treacle, buttered smoked fish, gravalax pencil shavings and warm cornbread.
Palate
Marine notes, seaweed, sage and onion sausages, but there is sweetness in these savoury layers, sugared almonds and roast sweet potato.
Finish
Long, peated and pretty big.
Comment
Everything you would expect from a relatively old Lagavulin.
