“With less sherry than the standard 16 years old expression, this Lagavulin 12 years old has an most interesting spices finish.”
It's pungent smoky and maritime aromas and taste are best appreciated with two parts still water to one part whisky. Any cloudiness is normal in an unfiltered cask strength malt.
If you want to know how Lagavulin tastes without any sherry, this is your answer. Simple pure peat muscle. I love it!
This dram has a fino-like color.
Nose (92): strong. honey, peat, earth, wood, citrus.
Palate (92): smooth, oily, powerful. peat, honey, malt, wood, spices, floral, citrus, cocoa.
Finish (92): long. peat, honey, spices, cinammon, blackpepper.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Lagavulin 12 year Special Reserve with 92 points over 100.
