The story goes that the name Lagavulin derives from the Gaelic term Lag a' Mhuilinn which means as much as “Hollow of the mill”
Due to the peaty character this was unmistakably a Soutern Islay Scotch whisky: Lagavulin. Peat smoke, smoked turnips, and a terpeny nose, as well as those wonderful whiffs of licorice. The taste, apart from its peaty character, offers almonds and this would have led you to Lagavulin as your pick of the day. Congrats on those who guessed this right!
There is something for everyone in this competition, and I think for the peat-lovers among us, this dram feels like coming home. Also Serge Valentin really loved this whisky, giving this extraordinary dram 92 points.
