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.
Core FlavourSugar-rubbed ham and crisp apples
Cask detailsMid-1990s’ refill sherry with early 2000s’ refill hogsheads.
NoseRich 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.
PalateSharp 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.
FinishLong and lingering, with rock-pool minerality, hammy smoke and sweet apples.
