  1. Whisky Hamster scored this whisky 90 points Member Senior

    On point Laga 12. Harmoneous @57.8% abv., obviously bears a lot of similarities with the predecessors, but I prefer it a notch over the 2017 edition which I just tried H2H. The nose is more reserved in comparison, but more importantly the dryness on the finish and the oak notes make it taste more mature and elegant than 12 years and elevate this year's edition over last year's special release in my book.
    Strong recommendation. Yet another fine powerhouse in a velvet glove. Chapeau, Lagavulin! ~90p.

  5. Archer scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    As in previous years, the 12 CS is again a safe bank. Young at maturity, but still mature and complete.
    • Nose
      90 90
      There it is immediate, the classic 12 CS nose with its freshness and its enormous smoke. Smoked lemon slices, immense peat smoke. Hot tar paper, salt, machine oil. Marine associations are on the rise: flushed seaweed, harbor basin odor, sun-heated watt at low tide.
      Some anise and liquorice shimmer through. And that he has a lot of brains, one already means, to be able to detect.
    • Taste
      91 91
      Strong start with peat smoke, lemon and licorice. Still a harbor scene with machine oil, warm tar, salt and seaweed. The lemon gives sweetness. Quite dry and slightly ashy on the tongue.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Medium long and dry, smoky, ashy. Freshly beaten wood, honey and liquorice at the end.

  6. Conside scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    Good, but there is no explosion.
