Lagavulin 12 YO S.R. 2020


Category: Tag:

Appearance: Pale gold; very pale straw. Good

Nose: Mild overall, with light prickle. The top notes
are unusually ashy for Lagavulin, but familiar hints
of linseed oil soon reassure. Gradually fruity notes
of hard candy (boiled sweets) emerge, as does a
clean, fresh suggestion of the sea, like sniffing the
sea air in a fishing harbour. With water, the aromas
reduce and the more pungent, smoky notes
come slightly forward.

Body: Medium.

Palate: At natural strength, soft and smooth in
texture with a big taste that is sweeter than
expected. Smoky too, with a little salt. A clean,
fresh Lagavulin that is very lightly drying midpalate. The sweetness is more prominent with
water, when the tastes are reduced yet broadly

Finish: Long and very smoky, as the smokiness
comes through much more strongly. Lightly drying,
with an appetising salty aftertaste. With water,
sweeter, though the smokiness still reasserts itself in
the aftertaste.
