Another Lagavulin in the 2012 Special Releases line-up, joining the ever present 12 year old. This is a much more limited edition 21 year old bottling, matured in first fill ex-sherry European oak casks filled in 1991. This has had quite a bit of buzz about it and we expect it to live up to the pedigree.

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Notes

    Appearance: Deep, rich amber. Good beading.
    Nose: Immediate raisin fruit and behind it, smoke from a recently lit fire or the inside of a Tudor chimney: damp yet welcoming. Linseed oil, wax crayon, pine resin? After this, soft fruits slowly appear (redcurrants, elderberries, over-ripe red apples) and the aromas grow richer and sweeter, with creamy butter and caramel. Finally, faint old smoke and damp, country churches. Dry overall, even with a little water, which brings subtlety; lemonade and marzipan, and finally spent matches and wood-ash, in a now-cold hearth.
    Body: Medium to full. Lighter with water.
    Palate: Initially hesitant, then full, cooling, sweet. Easy to drink at natural strength; smooth, rich and full-bodied. Sweet and tonguecoating, with rich bitter-sweet molasses, treacle toffee and toffee apples. Growing warmth and dryness, becoming woody and nutty, with more butter and bitter chocolate, before faint hints of a more savoury character. With water, calmer, creamier and sweeter in the mouth, with vanilla and beeswax.
    Finish: Complex and deep. Fabulous charred oak and fresh oak smoke. Finally sweet; perhaps baked apples, with creamy coffee and salted caramels.
