A very pleasant Whisky if you add a drop or two water to it. Should be a 100 proof. The abv is confirming at least. Actually very fruity for a Lagavulin and has a smokey note apearing as well. I would recommend this bottle.

Nose: I got citrus and grapes and fruits with smoke.
Finish: Predominately somkey, peaty but pleasantly long.

If you add up to 30% water to it is still good drinkable without killing everything. For my a very surprising experience.


Did you seek that note? Here is mine: A wonderful red / brown colour leads to somewhat E150 coloured Whisky, but no it is not… As well not chill filtered and bottled at 46% abv. That is how we like it. Its viscosity is black gold. You see the pearls running down the glas very smoothly.

Nose: Somewhat artificial sherry is apearing in the nose, but there is also liquorice with nuts. Herbal candy potentially «RICOLA», famous swiss herbal candy, burnt rubber after a racing start…. After about two minues a wonderful sherry wine is apearing.
Palate: After 18 seconds on the tongue you get a sharp taste and sweetnes is the main impression.
Finish: The finish starts warming the chest after about 5 seconds and suddenly vanishs away.

After the second tase you get somewhat bitterness but only in the background. If you just hold it short in the mouth and swallow it down, the finish gets even longer and warms the chast far longer than before. Bottles of this one are getting more and more expensive over time.


That is where a famous swirl in the sea is.

Nose: Abyssal, bizzare smokey, a fantastic tab shoot after the boom. That is what I get in the Nose. Salty seewed or an old dead shell would also give a good name for this dram. Or already a chemical incident in Basel the scent sneaks into the nose.
Palate: Believe me the just described smell are surounded with a sweetness that you seak the explosion on the tongue. 57% abv, Slainte Mhath.
Not to forget, the colour is royal golden. I will describe the flavour at a later stage.

Say: Hello, how are you, welcome and you...

Nose: smell a sort of a perfume (Denim??). This one is fresh, barefaced, flowery, a little bit of terpentine, leatherpolish, sweet.
Palate: A sweet bitterness is in the mouth and has its...
Finish: in the mouth, after about 20 to 30 seconds your chest welcomes this whisky. Your chops turn red, you feel it. A well crafted uisge beatha.

Peat without smoke is the nearest description of this Ardbeg, but not only. There is a vast of cough medicine without sweetness as well in it. Plenty of herbs… but also fustily. Not an everybodys darling. For sure is that good medicine and that is what you get in the nose. A side note of glue is also there. And yes rotten wood in autumn is exactly the best description I was looking after for that nose. On the tounge you get most of sweetness and after 10 seconds it gets hot. The finish is cooled down peat that starts warming the chest gently after 5 to 6 seconds. The tongue is dazed and stays coated.
