Lagavulin 12 Year Old, fabulously appetising. Less of the citrus acidity of earlier expressions. A fine example of the make. Very enjoyable straight and even classier with water.
Appearance: Deep amber
Nose: With water, the aromas embrace toasted cereal and take on a roasted, nutty quality but the fragrant smoke always returns.
Palate: Dusty, very sweet, then positively smoky, as with roasted chestnuts from a street vendor on a winter's morning
Finish: Long and smoky, with large amounts of exquisite smoke and a fragrant smoky aftertaste. Toasted sesame seeds and basil. Water brings out Indian spices (roasted cumin).
