Insider knowledge: Lagavulin 12 Year Old (2010 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 (2010 Release) whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
My first 12 CS from Lagavulin Colour : light strawyellow Nose : a lot of ( wet ) earthy peat; below that sweet apples and vanilla. Taste : the apples and vanilla return with a whif of (acacia) honey while the peat takes on a more sea like character; more smoked fish when some water is added. Finish : long with a pleasant sensation in the mouth which lasts forever. A finish you will still be experiencing the next morning!
