This is one amazingly concentrated malt. Of course, it needs some water to be enjoyed at its best. Better yet, I found it has the miraculous property of rescuing lesser bottles that you may regret purchasing. Lately for me, adding just a small amount to a Crown Royal Reserve and Clynelish 12 yo made a huge difference and saved my guests from having to drink that stuff with a fake smile on their faces..

My first 12 CS from Laga C : light strawyellowN : a lot of ( wet ) earthy peat; below that sweet apples and vanilla.T : the apples and vanlilla return with a whif of (acacia) honey while the peat takes on a more sea like character; smoked fish with water.F : long with a pleasant sensation on in the mouth which last forever. A finish you will experience still the next morning This all means I will surely try 1 from former years to compare and enjoy!!
