  1. Archer scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Always a pleasure, the 12 CS.
    • Nose
      Sweet smoke of a campfire. Dried orange peel, lime juice, quince jelly, green grapes. The smoke does not push in the thing, nice connection with the fruits.
    • Taste
      Strong and creamy at the beginning, camp fire smoke with peat content. Salty and fruity at the same time. Some ammonia, pepper, anise and ginger.
    • Finish
      The smoke does not go away, gets stuck everywhere. Lemon juice and a little honey give a pleasant sweetness.

  2. Jeep51 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Relatively clean with very frank maritime scents: sea water, sea breeze, iodine. The fruits (apple and citrus) can be guessed in the background as well as some more vegetal notes.
    • Taste
      The attack is surprisingly sweet but it's paradoxically it's very straight. There is a nice tension. Powerful peaty, slightly organic, earthy and tarred notes at a time. We also find the previous maritime notes.
    • Finish
      Long, fine. Black pepper, coal and tar.

  3. ASWhisky scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A young, lively whisky, arouses the desire to live, more exciting and tasty than the 16er
    • Nose
      first peat and smoke, warm sweetness, some citrus, salt, light sherry
    • Taste
      Tobacco, leather, warm peat, fine bright sweetness, salt, orange notes in between
    • Finish
      Peat, salt pleasant tingling

  8. Drochaid scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    As reliably excellent as ever, the 2011 Special Releases Lagavulin 12yo was distilled in 1999 and vatted from refill American oak casks. As you'd expect, this is a very upfront, sooty-sweet Lagavulin in the classic style.(TWE)
