Dram Review: Lagavulin Bottled Especially to Celebrate Feis Ile 2009 Distilled in 1995

[54.5%・13 Years Old・ Distilled in 1995・Bottled in 2009・Official Bottling・Cask No. 4556・ Single Cask Release of 660 Bottles]


Smoked biltong, Chinese style jujubes, somewhat woody with notes of cream powder and peanut brittle.

Palate & Finish:

Oily and rather obviously Sherried, Chinese style jujube sweet soup with a herbal and chocolate-y surrounding.

Dry herbal notes and freeze dried blackcurrants.


It’s rather much, if one is being rational. The elements are fundamentally sound and appealing but perhaps the principle is to not push so hard.
