Thick whispers of rich smoke, etched with bright herbs and juicy plums, for an indelible finish.
Finished in Don Julio Añejo tequila casks.
Thick wisps of aromatic herbal smoke honour the ancient art of tattooing, clouds that slowly disperse in whispers of stories. The sweet scent of ripe plums lingers, as smoky black ink etches an outline of illustrious past generations ascending to legendary heights. Each work of art is a map of historic victories, imprinted on a living canvas.
Inspired by the spirit of intensity and pride that shines through a Lagavulin history more than 200 years long, our Malt Master explores the famed symbols of the ancient Mesoamerican art of tattoo, rich in story and significance. The whisky, finished in Don Julio Añejo tequila casks, pulses with herbal flavours ancient and modern, engraving an indelible story.
Amid fierce glints of gold, fresh notes of sea air, citrus and ripened berries mingle with intense herbal smoke in an enchanted swirl of heady aromas, while the creamy-smooth and robust texture plays perfect canvas to a rich palette of swirling flavours. Sweet with juicy plums and a hint of saltiness, then ever more herbal and smokier, the flavours deep-etch their impression for a lip-tingling whisky of legends.
A mellow and surprisingly direct nose, with light floral grassiness. As it opens, an immediate citrus note of fresh orange juice edges towards apple juice, soon joined by suggestions of flaked almonds and light vanilla. More meadow-grass aromas develop the floral theme. The vanilla note increases slightly with a drop of water, nestling among sweet meadow scents.
Smoothly pleasing in texture and airy to taste; at first lightly sweet, then developing a citrus acidity. Fruitier then, with a delightfully unexpected rich and round style, while becoming lightly drying, with a vibrant oaky spiciness. Appetising and easy to enjoy straight and with water, which softens the spiciness and brings back the initial sweetness.
Of medium length and rich in character, finishing dry and spicy. A dash of water controls the spiciness nicely.
