lagavulin 1980-1995 - smws 111.1

Lot ID: 0918/817

1 bottle lagavulin 1980 - 1995. scotch malt whisky society 111.1. first fill spanish dry-oloroso butt. no box. 70cl. 63.3%. level in neck. good condition. from the archives. first ever bottling of distillery 111. the distillery stands close to the ruins of dunyvaig castle, once the stronghold of the lord of the isles. here is a great opportunity to see just how different the cask makes in the flavour of mature whisky. wet suits and burnt toast. this whisky is quite different from the next one. it has spent the last 15 years in a first-fill, spanish oak dry-oloroso butt. its colour is that of old madeira (or polished mahogany). the neat nose is redolent of sherry, with some soap flakes and fudge. with water an extraordinary scent of neoprene (the stuff wetsuits are made of) is first noted, then a trace of marzipan, exotic smoke, caramelised sugar heather stalks, sea tangle, burnt toast. winter smells. great with smoked salmon, or upon retiring from a walk.
