Lagavulin 12 Years Old 18th Release 70cl 57.8°
For the 2018 bottling of its Special Releases series, Lagavulin achieved a great success. This Single Malt Lagavulin 12 Year Old 18th Release has been rated "Best Scotch Single Malt " in the 12-15 years old category by the Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2019.
This limited edition, cask strength, has more softness compared to previous expressions but still develops this smoky character dotted with sea spray that marks its authenticity.
Lagavulin 12 years old 18th Release is the result of a meticulous selection among the stock of the distillery. The whisky has aged in second filling hogsheads, assembled in American white oak.
Built in 1816 on the South-East coast of Islay, not far from the ruins of Dunyvaig castle, old fortress of the Lord of the Isles, the Lagavulin distillery produces a Single Malt almost as legendary as the island where it was born.
Amongst Islay malts recognized for their peated and smoky character, Lagavulin is known for its complexity and depth: powerful, intensely peated, it is also rich, round and mellow. This double character is the key to appreciate the two new versions bottled at cask strength recently released by the distillery. The unique quality and style of Lagavulin whiskies ranks the distillery in the Classic Malts Selection. Created more than 20 years ago, this selection recognises Single Malts crafted in the tradition of iconic distilleries, and offers the most impressive whisky styles Scotland has to offer.
