In my opinion
No photos from this tasting exist as I thought the usual Diageo policies applied. The demonstration consisted of seven drams of Lagavulin from various ages and casks. I'll just list them here, I did not take any notes, but let me tell you this, for about an hour I was in whisky heaven >>>
