Tasting Notes

"Lovely notes of nougat, grapefruit and a smoldering bonfire on the nose. There are some band aids as well, followed by tinned pineapple, pickled lemon, soft oak spices and a slight minerality. Also some green veggies. Sweet arrival on the palate followed by tar, charcoal, ashes and subtle spicy notes. Some linseed oil, lemon, and green olives, finally some licorice. Classically good, the Lagavulin 12 Year never disappoints."
