Nose: Very slightly peachy, with raspberry and hints of eucalyptus. Toasted oatcakes, aniseed and cold-smoked meats. Maybe just a soupcon of sweaty armpits. In a good way.
Palate: Big and spiced. Chocolate cherries. All those classic Lagavulin notes. Some fenugreek, parsley and, with water, a substantial hit of aniseed.
Finish: Romaine lettuce, but the bit that’s slightly too close to the stalk that you don’t trim out because you think it’ll do you good.
