Nose: Very smoky with bonfire toffee, cold wood ash, smoked game and treacle.
Palate: This is very tangy and takes me right back to my first visit to the distillery on a freezing cold day with the weather ferociously setting in. Oily and smoky, like a log fire in winter. Hints of cocoa develop.
Finish: Long and oily, ending on signature Lagavulin smokiness, Ovaltine, Cocoa and pear.
