Lg4

Islay single malt scotch whisky

Youthful spirit from this distillery is well known for its crisp and intense flavour, but Lg4 bucks that trend. With more sherry-cask influence than earlier entries in the range, it combines a weighty body with the fresh and crisp smoke, creating a well-balanced and powerful whisky.

Tasting notes

  • Nose

    Rich and dark, with freshly ground coffee and barrel char complemented by freshly turned earth. Hammy notes follow, with brown-sugar sweetness, barbecued apples and freshly tanned leather.
  • Palate

    Sharp and green on the palate to start, with ferns and Granny Smith apples. The sharpness quickly sweetens and gets weightier, with stewed apple and liquorice joined by rich and earthy smoke.
  • Finish

    Long and lingering, with rock-pool minerality, hammy smoke and sweet apples.
