Nose: elegant luscious peat smoke, followed by honey sweetness and waves of smoke.
Palate: was expecting more from the nose, sweet in first with light oily coat following up with tingling pepperish feeling on your tongue , gives a bright fruity taste, some green apples
With water : more sweetness, prevalent bright fruit notes , complexity on the fruits glowing after 3 drip of water.
Finish: medium with some warmness following , lingering light zesty notes from the bright fruity taste , and some peatyness
After revealing discussion:
It's interesting how #blindtasting can open up senses to identify more variety to guess. If I've knew this as 43% the perception may be alot different. This #Lagavulin is definitely delicious and I still thought it's the higher ABV release.
Adding water brightens up the palate, do check out the notes from @malt_haus it's a lot more better.
