The Diageo Special Releases welcomes back the Lagavulin 12 for 2018. This is the 18th incarnation of the Islay single malt, which has only missed the very first edition in 2002. The limited release was matured in refill American Oak hogsheads and bottled at 57.8% ABV.
Isle of Islay
Nose: A classic Lagavulin – smouldering barbeque smoke, oodles of citrus peels, raspberry and peach. It’s quite green, with a freshly cut grass vibe in there too. Then there’s a wet wood aroma to keep it interesting.
Palate: Bonfire embers give way to hay, orange peel, toffee apples and salted caramel. Burned marshmallows, dark chocolate and cigar smoke, too.
Finish: Drying with bitter orange and wood smoke.
Overall: A deliciously smoky yet multi-dimensional whisky. We like. A lot.
