Whisky Fun Review
I’m following Lagavulin 16 every year, which is actually totally useless, since I always find it very good (it always strikes 90+ in my book). But we stop at nothing… It’s also the whisky I’m always having when in bars or restaurants. We’ll try to be quick, but this baby usually chats a lot… Colour: dark gold. Nose: what the… did it improve? I’m finding it brighter, fresher, a tad fruitier and zestier than usual, with mandarins on top of the leather, tobacco, tar, walnuts, and smoked tea. And salmiak. Immediate pleasures. Mouth: same feeling, it’s a little sweeter, perhaps, with touches of oranges, then liquorice, olives, lime, lemon balm, and just a touch of green pepper. Leather. Some salt starts to play with your lips. Finish: pretty long, earthier, with some pu-erh tea, liquorice, and just a touch of some kind of smoked caramel. Salt and lime in the aftertaste, a bit ‘margarita’. Comments: faultless as ever. I would go to 90.5, should I be mad enough to do halves. SGP:467 - 90 points.
