Whisky Reviews for Lagavulin 12-year-old

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.18 points

  1. Archer scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

      91 91

  2. Archer scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Just strong, the 12 CS.
    • Nose
      Cold smoke, but fresh and citric sweet. Slightly rainy tar and gum abrasion. Not a bit snappy, rather gallant and inviting, while modestly concealing the power that is in him.
    • Taste
      The sweet smoke from the nose, it comes directly to the tongue. He is strong, but not nearly as strong as the 58% suspect. Wonderful, though (because?) Undiluted. Mildly smoked fish, tar, seaweed, salt, pepper, machine oil - everything is there. In addition, always tart sweetness of lemons, sometimes grapefruit.
    • Finish
      Long and dry, ash flakes from the campfire (wood and peat soil), lemon sorbet and slightly peppery.

  3. hs305 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    [July, 2003]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 65 Euro in November, 2002.In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this 90.  My notes state a clean and flawless "naked" Lagavulin.

  5. Whisky scored this whisky 91 points Specialist

    N: nice peat reminds me of 70's Ardbeg or caol ila from about 1980. For me it is a bit more difficult to get under the peat.
    T: after the peat silky soft, some honey, pepper, here also some firs, a little bit groundy
    F: nice bitter, pepper and and there is some citrus hanging, fresh spicy I would say

  6. Feusi scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Enormously powerful Lagavullin. Spicy, peaty with a nice smoke and some bitter herbs in the heavy body. Should be diluted with water to produce better oaky notes.
