Lagavulin 12 Year Old
Taste the character and craft in every drop.

Isle of Islay.

Appearance

Pale gold in sunlight.

Nose

A powerful smouldering peat smokiness, with rich aromas of coal tar and a smell of the sea.

Body

Smoothly oily, unctuous.

Finish

Long, spicy and smoky.

Information

Make: Lagavulin

Age: 12 Years Old, distilled in 2005

Strength: 57.8% ABV

Region: Isle of Islay

Appearance

Pale gold in sunlight, with fine, light beading.

Nose

A powerful smouldering peat smokiness, with rich aromas of coal tar and a smell of the sea. Lighter notes of citrus, fresh mint, tropical fruits, grainy cereals and scrubbed pine. Late on, energetic and expressive hints of creamy toffee, lemon zest, chopped mint and sweet young oak.

Palate

Exquisitely powerful taste. Sweet and firm to start, with strong saltiness, then drying and vinegar-sharp. A complex of simple tastes: salt and vinegar on fresh chips wrapped in paper; mints; wax; fresh wood; old crates.

Finish

Long, spicy and smoky. Dusty, sharp and intensely sweet, then deeply pungent and cleansing, with long tannins and warmth.
