Dram Review: Lagavulin Available Only at the Distillery Distilled in 1993

[56.5%・Distilled in 1993・Bottled in 2007・Official Bottling・Cask No. 4893・ Single Cask Release]

Nose:

Ocean produce with a prominent presence of wet sand, some Chinese herbs mixed along with cocoa dust.

Palate & Finish:

Dry, dark and bitter, anise wrapped in peat smoke whilst being incredibly herbal.

A lengthy tail of peat smoke and bitter chocolate.

Thoughts:

A challenging and taxing genre, a technically sound single cask consistently deprived of joyous moments.

[Recommended if you like the distillery/style]
