TASTING NOTES:

  • Color: Lagavulin 12 Years has an amber colour.
  • Odour: Large, with aromas of freshly paved roads. Pervasive and complex. Coal tar, apple and smoked cheese.
  • Mouth: Intensely peat. Rounded with great character, the fragrant smoke, touch of black pepper, but balanced by enough sweetness. Parent peat remains until the end.

ALCOHOL: 57.8% Vol

The Producer

Lagavulin Distillery

Lagavulin Distillery

The distillery of Lagavulin officially dates from 1816, when John Jonston and Archibald Campbell constructed two distilleries on the site. One of them became Lagavulin, taking over the other—which one is not exactly known. Records show illicit distillation in at least ten illegal distilleries on the site as far back as 1742, however. In the 19th century, several legal battles ensued with their neighbour Laphroaig, brought about after the distiller at Lagavulin, Sir Peter Mackie, leased the Laphroaig distillery. It is said that Mackie attempted to copy Laphroaig's style. Since the water and peat at Lagavulin's premises was different from that at Laphroaig's, the result was different. The Lagavulin distillery is located in the town of the same name.

Lagavulin 12 Years

4 /5

This pale gold cask strength Lagavulin is bursting with intense distillery character. This limited release was matured in refill American Oak hogsheads and is sweeter than the past few years. It has a powerfully smoky nose with a tar soap base and sea salt. The palate is smoothly oily with an exquisitely powerful taste, before a strong and salty finish with plenty of Islay smoke.
