Whisky Reviews for Lagavulin 12-year-old

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.13 points

  1. KayMeertens scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Quite smooth for a young peaty cask strength whisky. I don't find that barley sweetness in later releases.
    • Nose
      Peat, sweet dark chocolate, lime, farm, salt, barley, vanilla and caramel. With water some peach.
    • Taste
      Peat, salt, dark chocolate, pepper, almond, lime, barley, orange and a slight nuttiness. Water makes it slightly musty.
    • Finish
      Peat, dark chocolate, citrus, gingerbread, salt, peach and barley.

  2. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    • Taste
      ashes, fire works, salt, smoked ham, spices - pepper and earthy
