Sold for HK$ 32,240 (US$ 4,158) inc. premium
Lagavulin-1976-37 year old
Distilled and Bottled at Lagavulin Distillery, Port Ellen, Isle of Islay.
Bottle number 627 of 1868. In presentation carton. Good label. Level: into neck. "...Mouth (neat): the oak feels a bit (astringency) but only for fraction of a second, because lemons, smokes and especially lapsang-souchong tea are soon to come to the rescue. I think we're really in the world of tea here, it's sharing many similarities with an old pu-erh, the soft kind of woodiness (incense once again, sandalwood, 'sweet' cinnamon), the mild fruitiness around kumquats and dried papayas, the earthy smokiness... Then there's some honeydew, lemon pie, a faint camphory touch, certainly some cough syrup 'as always', some black chocolate, oysters, lemon balm..." (5 Stars-Whiskyfun)

拉加維林—1976—37年
「......口味(淨飲):橡木有點(澀味),但只是幾秒鐘,因為檸檬、煙味,尤其是正山小種紅茶很快就透出。我認為我們真的置身於茶世界中,它跟陳年普洱有許多相似之處,柔軟的木香(再次有熏香、檀香、『甜』肉桂)、金橘和木瓜乾等溫和的果香、泥土的煙味......還有一些蜜露、檸檬批、淡淡的樟腦味,當然『如常』還有一些止咳水、一些黑朱古力、生蠔、檸檬香蜂草......」( Whiskyfun:5星)
