Lagavulin 12yo (SR 2017) Bottling Note

Lagavulin has become a Special Releases stalwart – and for good reason. The classic Islay distillery is beloved by peat fans (and everyone's favourite Parks director, Ron Swanson). This year's 12 year old candidate brings together the characteristic island smoke with the sweetness of American hogsheads, all wrapped up in a natural cask strength bottling. It's meaty and robust – Ron would certainly approve.

World Whisky Advent

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Meaty and mezcal-like with cola ham and a little putty.

Palate: Classic smoky embers and burnt ends. Full flavoured with balancing sweetness, great stuff.

Finish: Long, slightly drier but still balanced with plenty of ash and smoke.

Lagavulin 12 Year Old (Special Release 2017) Reviews

Just fantastic. Perfect balance and rich sweetness.

Unbelievably good Islay scotch. This is the only release of the 12 year old Lagavulin I have had, but I enjoy it loads more than both the 16 and 8 year Lagavulin expressions. It drinks quite easily for the proof, but takes a splash of water really well also. Based on this whisky, I really believe 12 years is the "sweet spot" for Lagavulin, as this one just has a perfect balance of the vibrant smoke and fruity character of the 8 year, but is so full, rich, and creamy (especially on the finish) which the 8 year lacks. The smoke and sweetness are just perfectly integrated and this whisky has one of the best finishes of anything I've tried to date. There are some peated scotches which I find a little too ashy and funky tasting, but this one is pure enjoyment from start to finish. Smashing good stuff.

Haven't had one this good in a long time. Perfect balance of heather and sweet barley.

Amazing. No Joke.

The best Islay whisky I've ever tasted. Lots and lots of peat, peat smoke, but not Laphroaig "in your face". Floral, cola, sweet barley, spearmint, effervescent.... Just a ton of stuff going on here. No coloring added I think. No chill filtering. Expensive here in the US. $200.00. Going to get another to keep for the future. A single malt lover's dream.

As good as the hype

Spectacular! Sensational in the most literal sense. Very well balanced and I like the dryness. Wonderful finish.

Great whisky. This year’s one is phenomenal

Laga fans rate the 12yo the highest among the common releases of 16, 12, 16 distillery edition.
The 2017 is just spectacular. The punchy Laga but still a sublime sweetness/fruity sweetness.
An awesome, spectacular whisky. Great whisky. This 2017 edition is perhaps the best in the past 5 years I would say.
