Lagavulin 12 2012
This is the astounding 11th release of one of our favourite cask-strength whiskies - Lagavulin 12 year old. This 2012 edition is a smoky, zesty whisky with masses of character.

A Special Lagavulin
I didn't believe all the reviews could be correct but they are. This scotch is upfront but so smooth. Smoky but sweet, not as much iodine as other Islays. The alcohol is masked incredibly well, not too much though. The first sip will make you a believer, and a wee bit impoverished.

Quality, quality. This is a robust cask-strength that does not disappoint. Huge peat and smoke finish, a steady delivery to the taste and matured. A long,finish which is complex with bitter spices and pine.
This is a bottle you take your time with.

Crowned the King at Our Tasting
My prize to come
We lined 'em up: The Balvenie15, Laphroaig Quarter Cask, Laphroaig10, Laphroaig18, Lagavulin Pedro Ximenez1995, Lagavulin16, Lagavulin12 Special Edition (2012 release) - 8 bottles of the best drinks we had. We were careful to take just a sip of each with enough time in-between to allow the previous dram to finish completely. We all WANTED to know what we each thought was the best. What better way than to try them all side-by-side! The order I listed the scotch is the end result for the majority of people there. The Lagavulin12 SE is absolutely above the 16 (always my favorite) as this Special Edition scotch simply demands more respect. This bottle will last me a long, long time as I don't feel qualified to drink it without a Special Occasion. ;-)
