Part of Diageo's Special Releases 2015. Very fruity and meaty, with Lagavulin's trademark smoke not far behind. A big, uncompromising whisky, and one that Lagavulin fans will enjoy.Tasting Notes (1)
Tasting notes by Billy A
Ash and lemons, abandoned beach bonfires, damp forests, and medicinal notes of bandages and freshly peeled sticking plasters. The citrus continues to grow, becoming zesty and sharp, with the medicinal nature becoming more like swimming pools. While it's punchy and not as rich and heavy as some years' releases, it has sweet vanilla hiding underneath the provide a respite.
Lots of minerality and austere smoke – cracked stone, burnt tree stumps and rock lined fire pits. It does get richer as it sits, but it's balanced by more bitter flavours – chocolate, caramel and pungent wood smoke, with a background of barrel char. Spice dances around underneath, with cinnamon and black pepper providing heat.
Liquorice, pine and rich earth, fading to cinnamon spice and menthol.
An in-your-face and zingy whisky, avoiding the weightier flavours that the distillery is often known for and focusing on smoke, zest and minerality – Lagavulin in its purest form.

Over the past many years I have been drinking Lagavulin 12 YO different Vintages and some of the early Releases were not that great (under 90 Points ) but then they improved over the years to become a lot better. The 2015 Release was the the highlight for me & way better then 2016-2017 editions. If you are looking to get a Lagavulin 12 YO this is the one I go for ( Point 92 ).
