Customer Rating
A triumphant entry for one of the annual Diageo Special Releases regulars – the Lagavulin 12 has only missed the very first edition in 2002. 2018's is sweeter than the past few years, with all of the smoke and seaside character that these bottlings are known for.

Lagavulin 12 Year Old Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting note by Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange

    Nose: Singed leaves, sweet peat and damp earth – a mismanaged forest campfire after a rainstorm. Sweeter notes build, with pink shrimp sweets, joined by crashing waves and damp leather. Soft spicey notes develop, along with pine trees and a touch of lime.

    Palate: Chocolate-covered pine needles and leafy undergrowth. The sweetness from the nose is here too, with icing sugar and barley sugar balanced by zesty lime.

    Finish: Minerally and minty, with leathery smoke and sawdust touches.

    Comment: Definitely sweeter than I expected, but still a raw but well-balanced display of Lagavulin’s ‘other side’.
