Tasting Notes Of Lagavulin 9 Years Whisky
All sweet smoke and loveliness up front. A Laga for sure. Delivering smoke, salinity and sweetness by the bucketload and in that order too. Rather than a medicinal peat smoke it has drying charcoal kind of smoky quality to it. A little briny-ness. Toffee apple sweetness – both the burnt, caramelised sugar and fruity tartness. There’s some orange zest in there too along with some red berries and cherries.
Really soft on the tongue – sweetness and fruit flavours roll over the tongue and then the classic Lagavulin smoky rasp really kicks in. It reminds me of the char that you get on a burger from a proper charcoal-lit barbecue. That burger seems to have been seasoned well too as the coastal/briny sea salt note is there followed by lots of pepper – the alcohol and oak delivering a real flash of white pepper heat to tongue.
The Lags kinda trails off but sweet oak lingers for a while and actually the lasting flavour seems to be the base ingredient of the whisky itself: malt. There’s a lovely sweet grist like flavour left behind until you breathe again after the dram has gone and that signature smoke just billows back.
