Part of Diageo's Special Releases for 2019, this is the 19th release of the Lagavulin 12yo. Matured in refill American oak casks and bottled in 2019. Bottled at a natural cask strength of 56.5%. (Bottle size 750ml)
Nose: Classic Lagavulin. Highly phenolic, with clean, fresh top notes of medical supplies; carbolic, dentists’ mouthwash and medicine cupboards, all on an ashy base, reminiscent of a recently extinguished peat fire.
Palate: Unexpectedly sweet, intense and very smoky. A sprinkle of sea salt. Benchmark distillery character throughout, exactly as is expected from a Lagavulin 12.
Finish: Long, warming, sweet and delightfully smoky. Lightly drying.
