Whisky Reviews for Lagavulin 12-year-old
7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.84 points
I'm not the biggest fan of Islay whiskies but the Laga 12 never dissapoints. An essential Whisky for every collection.
Some cake dough and slightly leafy. Lots of roots, some hay. Faint tobacco notes. Apples. Smoked fish. Citrusy and mineral but also very shy. You really have to work it.
Very fizzy in the arrival. Then some roots, followed by hazelnuts and even a bit of chocolate. Some dusty wood. Then you get salty smoked fish right before the finish.
Medium long. Very sugary sweet, chocolate and chili. Dry, austere after taste.
- One for the friends of quality spirit-driven, youngish malt. Fresh and lemony, chalk and limestone, heavy on the smoke and very salty. So rather austere but certainly something for those who like their seawater unsweetened, clean and smoky with lemon juice... don't get me wrong, I like it but gentle it ain't.
- Makes a peatier impression than the preceding release.
Peat, dark chocolate, gingerbread, citrus, toffee and peach.
Earthy peat, citrus, dark chocolate, gingerbread, pepper, toffee and a farmy touch. With water more toffee.
Peat, gingerbread, lime, toffee and salt.
