Elements of Islay Lg2 Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (500ml)

$120. 00
$1440.00 Dozen
ABV: 58%

One of a new collection of seriously fun whiskies produced by Specialty Drinks to celebrate Islay. The series is produced by vatting between 5 and 20 barrels of whisky from a single distillery.

This is the second 'Lg' (Lagavulin) release described by the bottlers as sweeter yet more rugged than the previous expression.

Tasting notes: Very pale straw / gold colour. Nosing over 3-4 minutes runs the gamut of all things peaty offering brawny notes of elastoplast, wet wool, boot polish and damp earth. Entry is salty and tingly on the tip of the tongue followed by an intense wave of creamy, medicinal peat; lanolin and hints of vanilla are followed by a sweet pepper burst. Excellent length. Outstanding mouthfeel given the high ABV. Lengthy aftertaste of lanolin and sweet spice. A burly and youthful, deeply satisfying Lagavulin. 58% Alc./Vol.
