Lagavulin 26 Year Old Diageo Special Release 2021 Description
This dram is all about bringing the best out of things, whether that be the casks, the spirit, or maybe, the lucky punters who ever get a chance to taste it! This was distilled in 1994 and was aged for a whole 26 years in a combination of PX and Oloroso sherry seasoned first fill casks. Respected by the delicate hands at Lagavulin over the decades, in might just be the deep-hued beech tree colour, but we get something of the beauty of autumn captured in this dram.
Nose: wine-woody aromas, linseed oil, baked fig, butterscotch.
Palate: medium body, ultra-smooth, oily texture, smoky and savoury as it progresses.
Finish: long, sweetly warming, faintly smoky, chanterelle mushrooms, pepper.
