Serge says:

Star5.jpg I have found the most recent batches of the 12 better than the first ones, which were maybe a tad too rough and mono-dimensional in my book. Let’s see if this brand new one is in the same league. Colour: straw. Nose: uber-clean when compared with the FOCM, much more on pure peat smoke, fresh butter, fresh almonds, sea water and freshly cut cider apples. Whiffs of cold coal oven, wet stones and old books. Very pure. With water: it got even cleaner and purer. I don’t know why, it reminds me of Trimbach’s Clos St-Hune (wine aficionados will understand.) Mouth (neat): exactly the opposite of the ‘FOCM’. Way ‘cleaner and purer’, sharper, more beautifully austere, maybe the lesser sweet of all Lagavulins that were issued within the last ten years. Lime, almonds, peat, huge smokiness and green apples. My kind. With water: it got a tad sweeter again, and a little resinous as well. More pepper. Finish: long, clean, with even more pepper. Comments: maybe I’m dreaming but I think the 12yo C/S gets better and better year after year. You may read ‘purer and purer’. SGP:248 - 91 points.

Waykid gave this whisky 84 points
Color
White wine
Nose

Sweet & savoury, a soft but strong smoke, lemon, raw garden apple, mortar and band-aids. Turns rounder with more water, the same elements complemented with salmiak and smoked ham. Gets nicer and rounder for a long time. Nice.

Taste

Hot and pungent initially. Soft and salty smoke, lemons, crisp green apple, some smoked ham, seaweed. Crisp, bitterish and clean profile.

Finish

Smoky and salty/lemony, quite long.

Comments

I liked the nose better than the taste. These young, strong, crisp and clean ones are good but I find the older Lagas with their gentle depth and width better.
