Lagavulin is renowned for producing some of the most intense and complex single malt whiskies in Scotland, and the Prima & Ultima series takes this to the next level. This particular release is a 25-year-old single-malt Scotch whisky distilled in 1997 and bottled in 2022, making it a true collector's item. The whisky is drawn from a very small number of casks, each with its own unique story to tell. Lagavulin is known for its rich, peaty flavor profile, and this expression is no exception.
Intense aromas of smoke, seaweed, and iodine dominate, with underlying notes of vanilla and caramel.
The peat smoke is front and center on the palate, with flavors of charred wood, leather, and a hint of brine. The sweetness of vanilla and honey provides a nice balance.
The finish is long and warming, with smoky and salty notes lingering on the palate. A touch of sweetness brings the experience to a satisfying close.
