Lagavulin, 12 Year Old

RRP 125 per bottle
UK Stockist
Tasted by
Becky Paskin

Distilled: 2007

Refill American Oak Casks

Number Bottled: Limited Quantities

Nose: Delicately ashy, the remains of a charcoal fire, with bitter dark chocolate and a sweet herbal quality in spearmint and basil leaves.

Palate: Soft and dirty, all bonfire smoke, hearth ash and freshly laid tar. The flavours are meaty, earthy, briny and a little bitter, like rich dark chocolate, molasses and coffee grounds, but with a peppery, minty lift.

Finish: Hot tar, iron filings and salted dark chocolate.

Conclusion: Lagavulin yet again demonstrating its extraordinary power to transport its drinkers to Islay’s shores.
