Lagavulin, 28 Year Old, Islay, Prima & Ultima, 2020 Release, 1991

Tasting Note:

The purest expression. Distilled in 1991 at the age of 28, this natural cask strength Lagavulin has been drawn from American refill oak casks. This is an exceptional deep gold Lagavulin. Distilled not long after great strides had been made towards capturing more of the pure distillery character of this majestic malt. Preserving that pure Lagavulin spirit with minimal cask influence. The carefully selected American Oak hogsheads have cocooned the whiskies for generations. The oldest bottling ever to mark that achievement, this small release comes from a mere handful of remaining casks of their kind filled in 1991. It shows the pure distillery character to perfection and has a terrific depth of flavour. Deep gold in colour with pale amber lights. The aroma is Linseed oil, muscle rub and a suggestion of fresh linen, then a hint of putty, based on a distant wisp of bergamot-scented smoke. The taste is smoothly oily and rich in texture, with a beautifully balanced sweet, then salty and smoky taste, in which a drying, spicy warmth builds. The finish has a medium length, with more scented smoke, and very spicy.
