    Serge says:


    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.

  4. Waykid scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    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. 
    • 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.

  9. Ikkakumon scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Superb.
    • Nose
      Very iodized, peat, yellow fruits, embers, smoked fish.
    • Taste
      Austere and delicious, fruit with salt, peat, woody notes, tar, barbecue.
    • Finish
      Long, bitter, salty, a little pepper, hints of charred coal.

    A great expression!
