Tasting Notes for Lagavulin 12 Year Old Special Release 2013
Nose: Smoky smells emanate from the Lagavulin as you take in short whiffs of the whisky. This is quite comforting and a signature of the Lagavulin, the smoke being heavily woody and peaty. This is combined with citrusy aromas, nutty notes and a delicious scent of warm buttered toast.
Palate: The Lagavulin being a premium whisky is delicious and this is no surprise. A smoked fish and meaty peat plays subtly on the taste buds. This, along with the woody flavours makes the liquor a darn good dram and a must taste Scotch. The cocoa, seaweed and barbecued vegetable kebabs merge together creating an explosion of flavour. The Lagavulin 12 Year Old Special Release 2013 is sweet, light, oily and well balanced.
Finish: The light tobacco smoky finish is long and warm. Hints of cocoa linger on with a gentle sweetness. The salty taste and creaminess is exotic and simply splendid. The whisky gets oily towards the end. With water it is pleasantly sweet and the mellow smoky flavour tantalises your senses. The drink can be enjoyed anytime whether bright and sunny or chilly and gloomy. Take a sip every time you feel blue, or if you wish to celebrate a happy occasion.
