Lagavulin has become a Special Releases stalwart – and for a good reason. The classic Islay distillery is beloved by peat fans worldwide. The 2017 12 Years Old candidate brings together the characteristic island smoke with the sweetness of American hogsheads, all wrapped up in a natural cask strength bottling.
Expect swirling layers of smoke, liquorice, charred meats and green tones of apple and sweet pear. It's meaty and robust – fans would certainly approve.
