Interesting fact… Lagavulin 12 Year Old (2010 Release) whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Lagavulin 12 Year Old (2010 Release) whiskey, instead of 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!
