Insider knowledge: Lagavulin 12 Year Old (2009 Release) whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Lagavulin 12 Year Old (2009 Release) whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
This bottling just gets better and better. I buy this for myself at Christmas every year and it never disappoints. A classic.
Truly one of a kind cask-strength malt. Peat and grassy lemon in a chunky barley packet. This one takes time to open up, a few drop of water helps. Quite different than 16 y, though.
£200! What did I miss? Why so expensive?
I am glad I bought them at a great price. Unfortunately , down to my last few bottles
Nice finish with understated elegance. The fruits rose through the peat and intertwined harmoniously. A delightful drink. Good conversation piece. My personal opinion, showing much more character than the 16 Year.
