A thirteen year old that is the first Lagavulin ever to be matured in refill American Oak and finished in ex-Mezcal American Standard Barrels, this 2021 Jazz Festival exclusive has been exquisitely re-arranged to hit remarkable new high notes. Only 2021 bottles are available. On the nose unusual smoky-meaty aromas of the barbecue lead familiar linseed oil and fragrant smoke. The texture is really smooth and rich, the taste sweet and savoury to start then quickly warming, as waves of smoke sweep over the palate carrying hints of spicy wood and smoke-dried Jalapeno pepper. This new-found heat lingers with the smoke in a pleasing, long finish.
