Ligt rokerig, goed niet heel bijzonder
sweet and harsh. typical smokiness and leather. for lack of a better term burnt rubber?
Herbs followed by sweetness and eventually bonfire and vanilla.
Sweet, sharp, then peaty bonfire.
Slightly bitter finish.
Really yum, not as intense as the 8 or the 16, but very good.
So surprising for lagavulin is that Caramel and toffee are the leading notes, followed by a toasty pine forest fire smoke, seaweed and brine
Citrus, stewed figs, beautiful spice and a slightly subdued smoke for lagavulin. brine and sea spray linger
longer lasting smoke, although not intense, spice, brine and lemon.
I find the 16 with more interesting, even tho that's a good whisky
there's too much citrus imho but I love the liquorice on the taste buds
Sweet, smokey peat and sour apricots on the nose, sweet peat and bbq meats on the silky palate, the finish is long and smokey with more sweet peat and sour apricots. Empty glass smells amazing.
Nose is sweet like salted caramel, tobacco, banana and smoke. Oily peaty smoke taske, caramilzed fruits, bit salty and a wonderful long smoky, spiced finish.
Ich kannte bisher nur die beiden älteren Standardabfüllungen der Brennerei, die schwer und gesetzt im Glas liegen. Dieser hier ist eher spritzig mit Banane, Vanille und Zitrone und dem typischen Laga Rauch darüber, allerdings viel "heller".
Im Mund sehr weich, fast ölig, trotzdem leicht pfeffrig. Dazu süß und rauchig.
Im Abgang sofort kalte Asche, durch die sich langsam die Banane kämpft und von Espressonoten begleitet wird.
An Komplexität nicht mit den älteren Brüdern zu vergleichen aber gefährlich süffig. Schönes Teil für solch eine "Marketing" Abfüllung, gefällt mir gut und mit dem besseren Ende als deren Pate.
Peat and smoke on the nose with the expected follow on the pallette. After getting by the peat get butter and a semisweet dark cherry. Finish is spicy maintains for a while.
smoke and peat
peat butter and semisweet fruit
Overwhelming peat with some vanilla? I'm not very good at picking apart these super-peated scotches
Smokey peat, grass, subtle vanilla, candied bacon?
Very smokey, smoked salted meat, pepper, fairly smooth, medium bodied
Smoking wood chips, banana aids
Its seven years younger and 3% more alc/vol than the 16 year, so there is some noticeable difference. The nose is peaty, but less pronounced than the 16 year. Its a tad more fruity and oaky than its older brother. Taste is not as complex and the bbq peat that i'm accustomed to is not as prevalent. The taste is still great, fruity and complex, but just a tad more harshness on the backend. Its enjoyable, but it doesn't live up to the 16 year. Cool bottle, but if your not a collector of the GoT bottles then I would stick with the 16 year.
I’m not a fan of peated whisky, yet this one is pretty soft and nice to drink.
Just what you can expect from Lagavulin, smoke and peat. Can't go wrong with this one.
Peaty and fruity, with apple, pear, blackcurrant and smoked meat. Saline, banana, liquorice and burnt sugar. Very well balanced. Tried this as a sample, but I'll surely pick up a bottle.
Lovely dram feels like 16 turned up in peat. I will say I miss the finish of 16 with the uplift but would say its amazing on every other front. One other gripe is the price I think for a 9 year old it should be less yes I get that it is a game of Thrones whisky and you are going to pay for that, plus it is at a higher proof than the 16 but I think £50 pound or around that would be a better price. Hopefully they start releasing this as a standard bottle but I have yet to try the 8 year old so I can't say if it improves over that expression.
excellent, strong and peaty
Rich smokiness comes across as overwhelming peppercorn. Delicious.
If you like Lagavulin you'll love this expression
