Special Releases 2022 Elusive Expressions

As our legend goes, one extraordinary day the King of Islay was reborn. A spark of sunlight fell from the sky, and set the land ablaze. When the flames subsided, the scorched earth was veiled in thick smoke. A regal Phoenix soared above its wings of fire powering the stills of Lagavulin, amplifying its spiced intensity. In this deep expression from virgin oak and our smokiest reserves,peaty casks lead spice and smoke on their eternal dance with deep sweetness.

Tasting Notes

Product Appearance iconIcon to highlight the product tasting note appearance section

Appearance

Gleaming, iridescent gold.

Product Body IconIcon to highlight the product tasting note body section

Body

Medium.

Product Nose IconIcon to highlight the product tasting note nose section

Nose

Dry, with an immediate powerful smokiness; much more so than is usual with Lagavulin, with charcoal and fragrant peat massively to the fore, backed by a clean fresh base-note that suggests sea air and mineral scents. Much reduced, aromatically, with even a little water, it remains essentially unaltered.

Product Palate IconIcon to highlight the product tasting note palate section

Palate

The smooth lightly oily texture shines with sweet richness; the taste is sweet to start, then takes off with a soaring lemony acidity and a sprinkling of sea salt to add freshness. Mid-palate the fire dries the taste, which flies still higher now in its salty-smoky intensity. A dash of water rounds and sweetens but it’s the smoke that dominates.

Product Finish IconIcon to highlight the product tasting note finish section

Finish

Long, with great waves of peat-smoke, and new-fired heights of spiced and smoky intensity that last wonderfully in the aftertaste.
