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.
