Member Ratings and Notes
Andy
 

Nose:  Geez, 90% salt mine, 10% toffee

 

Palate:  For a Lag, I'd say this has more medicine and less smoke.  Evergreen.  A nice deviation, but not something you can't find in perhaps a Laphroaig.  B/B+

Sku
 

Nose:  Very raw and young on the nose.  Lots of bold peat up front with syrupy new make notes.

Palate: Peaty and medicinal but without much depth.

Finish: sweet and medicinal.

 

This must be very young.  It tastes more like a young Laphroaig or even something from the PC series than a Lagavulin.
