A single vintage 12YO Lagavulin chosen for its purity of cask expression alone and a true individual; smooth-textured and soaring in taste and intensity, with a long and deeply smoky finish.

The aromas of this modern day King of Islay are elusive, until familiar hints of ash and linseed oil emerge. A light fruity note follows, as does a clean, fresh whiff of the sea, like breathing in the air of Lagavulin bay.

 

Nose:

Mild overall, with light prickle. Gradually fruity notes of hard candy (boiled sweets) emerge, as does a clean, fresh suggestion of the sea, like sniffing the sea air in a fishing harbour.

Palate:

At natural strength, soft and smooth in texture with a big taste that is sweeter than expected. Smoky too, with a little salt. A clean, fresh Lagavulin that is very lightly drying mid- palate. The sweetness is more prominent with water, when the tastes are reduced yet broadly unchanged.

Finish:

Long and very smoky, as the smokiness comes through much more strongly. Lightly drying, with an appetising salty aftertaste.
