Lagavulin 12 Year Old Diageo Special Release 2021 Description
One for smoky whisky fans to savour! This is Lagavulin with one goal, a terrifically tasty smoky dram. This is classic Lagavulin. Distilled in 2008, this was laid to rest for 12 years exclusively in refill American oak casks, whereafter it was bottled at an eye-watering 56.5% abv. Presented with a natural colour and without chill filtration, this dram is adorned by the symbol of the lion. As anyone lucky enough to try this bonnie-looking dram will be able to testify, this is one fiercely flavourful whisky.
Nose: mild, clean, big notes of sea salt salinity, distant wood-smoke.
Palate: medium in body, smooth, sweet then acidic, sea salt.
Finish: long, big waves of smoke, hits of chilli pepper warmth, and lingering fire smoke.
