Lg3

Islay single malt scotch whisky

This distillery, like most on Islay, sits on the seashore. While the debate as to whether the location imparts a coastal character or not continues to rage, there’s no doubt that Lg3 is a very maritime dram.

Tasting notes

  • Nose

    Salted lemons, white pepper and new tennis shoes. Fruit develops in the glass – grapefruit, candied lemon and fruit chews – along with an air of sea spray and crashing waves. Lime peel, pith and juice appears behind the fruit along with toffee and a background of spicy wood smoke.
  • Palate

    Sweet fruit – apples and bananas – and smoky gravel notes lead, with white-pepper spice following. As the spice calms down, even more fruit comes through, with a hint of smoky barbecue sauce and rich black liquorice.
  • Finish

    Liquorice and wood ash, sweetening with time to become stewed apple with a sprinkle of cinnamon.
