Single Malt, Scotland / Islay, 50cl, Ref: 19810

Of course, it is the famous Lagavulin behind “LG”. In fact, the initial nose immediately puts us on the trail of this famous single malt from the south coast of Islay. A very young expression with a strong presence of notes of fermentation, this LG5 nonetheless shows the same freedom of expression and persuasive nature as the cask strength Lagavulin 12 year old. They are like two drops of peat in a pod

Profile: extremely elegant peat. Fermentation notes also emerge.

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : very pale greenish gold.
  • Nose : powerful, concentrated. The initial nose comes as a single block of powerful peat. Next, white flowers (lily), white fruit (gooseberries), exotic fruit (lychee), lichen, fresh walnuts and spices (cardamom, cloves) appear on the surface of the aromatic palette. It takes impressively little time to become refined. Once allowed to breathe, we find ourselves inhaling the fragrance of fermenting wort, while a light note of carbon dioxide fills the air.
  • Palate : snappy, rich. Peat unceremoniously takes hold of the palate. As with the nose, it shows great elegance. Fermentation notes also emerge. The midpalate is fruity (yellow melon, watermelon) and even vegetable-like (cucumber, courgette). It gradually becomes liquoricey and spicy (star anise, ginseng). Walnut husks add a light tannicity to the very end of the palate.
  • Overall : long, clean. The peat has become chocolatey and roasted (tobacco, tea leaves). A handful of fruit (pear, apple) and white flowers try, for better or worse, to make their way through. They finish by taking the asphalt path generously offered by the retro-nasal olfaction. The empty glass takes us back to the fermentation room, with the smell of malted beer emanating from the wash backs
The brand


A wine merchant recently founded by the Singh brothers, the owners of The Whisky Exchange in the United Kingdom, Speciality Drinks offers three ranges of very different single malts. The first, Port Askaig, is composed of four bottlings of an Islay single malt, including an expression with no age statement and a 30 year old! The second, Elements of Islay, celebrates the different distilleries on the island, each easily identified by their initials. The third, simply dubbed Speciality Drinks, offers a wide selection of single malts from Scottish distilleries.

The line

Taking its inspiration from the Periodic Table of elements, the British company Speciality Drinks created Elements of Islay, an exclusive range of single malts from the isle of Islay, bottled unchillfiltered at cask strength. Sourced from all of the island’s distilleries, these bottlings focus on the basic “elements” such as peat, iodine and tar resulting in some powerful whiskies with plenty of character!
