Lagavulin 12 Year Old Cask Strength 2013 Release Single Malt Whisky is the 12th release of 12 year old Lagavulin from Diageo's Special Releases range. An eternal favourite, balancing price against a good cask strengthed expression of whisky from one of Islay's most mysterious distilleries.This 2013 edition is a smoky, feisty whisky with loads of character.
Colour: Pale gold.
Nose: Soft and beguiling; soon strengthened by the arrival of wood smoke. Then, notes of spent matches and wood ash and the smoky sharpness is softened by smooth, sweet, vanilla custard with a fruity, cleansing tang.
Palate: Smooth and vibrant, with lemon zest. Profoundly herbal, with smooth, dark chocolate; then drying, with wood ash and coal tar. Lots of aromatic smoke, cleansing lemon and a piercing pine resin freshness.
Finish: Lengthy and warming; with notes of light smoke.
