  1. Maltbehr64 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Whiskyfun: Lagavulin 12 yo 'Special Release 2009' (57.9%, OB) Colour: white wine. Nose: explosive yet austere, sharp like a blade, on pure peat smoke, cider apples, coal smoke and wet rocks. With water: soot, putty, cigar smoke, flints, peat and limejuice. Mouth (neat): extremely powerful, all on peat, ashes, lemon, green apples and fresh almonds. Ziiiing! With water: a tad rounder and sweeter, but still on lemon, peat and green tea. Cough drops as well (the best ones of course). Finish: very long, ultra-clean. Comments: sharp and straightforward and totally flawless. Epitomical, as they say. A pure malt in all its glory, without the tiniest woody/winey make-up. Maybe we could call it ‘Naked Glory’ – now, wouldn’t that be a nice name for a malt whisky? No, I’m not looking for a new job… SGP:248 - 91 points. http://www.whiskyfun.com/archivenovember09-2.html#271109
