The 2016 Special Releases bottling of Lagavulin 12 Year Old, celebrating the distillery's 200th anniversary. It's a punchy and coastal-tinged whisky, showing another side to the distillery's character from the 16-year-old.Tasting Notes (1)

Diageo Special Releases 2016
Tasting notes by Billy Abbott (TWE)
Bacon bits, sea spray, pine trees, ferns and mulchy leaves, all backed up by a slab of spice and damp smoke. Water adds in oily notes as well as bung cloth, dunnage warehouse and touches of creosote.
Ash, sea-drenched rocks and smoky, cast-iron hearths. Sweetness rolls through the centre, with smoky salted caramel and sweet tea balanced out by tarred ropes and more of the bung cloth from the nose. Water brings out sweet black liquorice and softens the smoke.
Toffee, honey, tar and spicy smoke.
A bit of a beast which takes water well. It’s got all the smoky seaside character of previous years with great sweetness.

Really peaty with a very nice colour. An excellent dram!
Classic Lagavulin - on steroids! Classic Islay nose, initial tar, tobacco, sweet fruit, and then the long, long aftertaste of smoke. Wonderful!
Great long taste. A bit more muscle than previous years. Don't bother trying a lesser Single Malt after you have had this one. I think that you will be disappointed.
Absolutely amazing! Very smooth at first, then a sudden explosion of smoke. Long aftertaste - sits very well with me overall!
Always a stunner !!a little sweeter than previous years but that's a nice thing. And it does feel like a beach bonfire in your mouth. Magnificent !!!
