Tasting Note:

'The Lion’s Jewel'

Distilled in 1994 from PX/Oloroso seasoned first fill casks, 44.2% ABV.

The colour of a deep-hued beech tree in autumn, on the nose it is mellow with complex with woody aromas. Light, fresh and vinous top notes mingle with linseed oil then fade into a warm suggestion of sun-bleached polished mahogany, backed by dry edible seaweed, with sweeter hints of baked fig and butterscotch. Further in, the aromas grow more pungent, oily and fragrantly smoky. Medium bodied, on the palate it is light, ultra-smooth and oily, with sweetness soon tinged with salt and pepper, growing more savoury and smokier. Here is all the precious sweet-smoky style of Lagavulin, in a glowing, well-rounded form. The finish is long, sweetly warming and faintly smoky, a drop of water introduces a little pepper, then the smokiness reasserts itself in the drying aftertaste.
