Lagavulin 12 year old (Diageo Special Releases 2020), 56.4%
Price: $164 ● Issue: Winter 2020 ● Reviewer: Gavin Smith
Sweet woodsmoke, peat embers, Jaffa oranges, new leather, sea salt, and cigarette smoke on the nose. Orange carries over onto the robust palate, with quite pronounced smokiness, black pepper, and dark chocolate. Long and peppery in the finish, with lingering smoke and brine.
