The Whiskies of Islay — Lagavulin
Lagavulin 12 years old '17th Release' 56.5%
Unlike the more subdued 16 year old Lagavulin, the 12 year old is intense and uncompromising. Bottled at cask strength and offering a much stronger smoke and peat influence, it shows the more rugged and expressive side of the distillery. Sea-spray salty peat, citrus, cured smoky meats and a drying, spicy finish.
Lagavulin 16 years old 43%
One of the most famous whiskies in the world, Lagavulin's 16 year old has a lovely balance between a tarry blast of peat smoke, touches of sweet honey and rich dried fruit that lingers on to a dry and mellow smokyness - a true Scotch whisky classic from Islay.
