OB Lagavulin 21yo 56.5%, 1985 6642 bottles
Colour : deep Amber
Nose : Unmistakable Laga on the nose. Much resemblance to the 16. Peat, but also mealy. Maybe even strong cheap tea stirred with a raw birchwood stick. Somehow you feel sherry, but its really hard to pin it down.
Palate : Good grief this is good stuff. I'm almost lost for ideas where to start. It's nutty, leathery, tea stained genius. The wood really shows with elements of resin, but not musty, or old feeling. Madeira? Its lovely!
Finish : Will it ever stop? I may be chewing this tomorrow.
Comment : I wish I had tried this on a fresh palate, but any way you cut it this is a great dram. I think I will have to track one down and pay the £110 for the bottle. Super!
