Place of Origin: Lagavulin
The he 2018 edition 12 year old Lagavulin single malt Scotch whisky, featuring malts that were distilled in 2001 and 2002, matured in refill American oak casks and bottled at cask strength, it’s a top way to enjoy some of Islay’s excellent single malt.
A smooth, oily mouthfeel; surprisingly sweet, with coating liquorice and a rising, smoky pungency, before the dryness of rich chocolate arrives with balancing salt and smoke. Water amplifies all these flavours, delivering more sweetness, saltiness, smoke and ash; dusty notes mingle with sulphury smoke and clean, pine-fresh menthol and eucalyptus, while the tongue finds the tannins well formed.
Easy-going, sweet and powerfully smoky. First there are those smoothly coating tannins. Then, salt and smoke; spent matches, clean slabs and charred embers; and a little orange oil. It’s sweetly appetising, warming and intensely smoky with water; clean, with cool smoke and wood ash.
