Lagavulin Jazz 2022 Release 7 Year Old 59.5%
|Description||Ex Bourbon Hogsheads|
|Age||7 Year Old|
We created this young single malt scotch whisky as a golden opportunity to showcase the vibrancy and life that is found in Lagavulin spirit, and the seven years in cask just hones the flavour and adds a touch of sweetness without dampening any of its vibrancy. It’s a fairly straightforward and uncomplicated whisky! The addition of ex-bourbon casks, along with the bottling at cask strength offers a different perspective on the other well-known Lagavulin whisky flavours
Official Tasting Notes
Light to medium.
A mild nose with light prickle despite the strength. The top-notes are both maritime, suggesting a briny, fresh sea breeze with a trace of iodine, and citric, backed by a chalky mineral note on a faintly medicinal base, with little peat-smoke so far.... though adding a drop of water soon brings up that subject!
At natural strength, a smooth and gently oily texture. The taste is lightly sweet, rounded and citrus-fruity while also notably salty, then smoky, growing more and more so, as threads of pungent wood smoke lead straight to white pepper heat late on. Water softens and calms the flow; the balance now is poised between softer sweetness and ever-present smoke.
Quite long, smoky and drying, as more than a little of the spicy heat entwines with the smoke in a pleasing and warming finale. Similar with water, when there is a mouth cooling aftertaste.
