TASTING NOTES LAGAVULIN 21 1985/2007

Nose: needs some time in the glass to open up. In the beginning the high gradation is perceptible, which becomes gradually less evident. Peat is present, but it is completely different compared to the younger Lagavulin. It is gentler and less mineral. Hints of smoke, burned wood. Mahogany, wood polish and red fruits (cherry and strawberry). Lastly, hints of coffee and dark chocolate.

Palate: spices (black pepper) and red fruits, outlined in cherry. Round and “chewable”, it presents an exceptional intensity. It continues with peat and the red fruits, which gradually evolves.

Finish: of long persistence. There are peat, black pepper, spices and red fruits (mainly strawberry) present.

It is intense and balanced. Every feature excels. Lagavulin is confirmed as one of the best distilleries in recent years.
