The 2020 edition of one of Diageo's favourite limited edition annual releases: the Lagavulin 12 Year Old as part of the yearly Special Releases. This year, they've decided to push the sweetness of the whisky, using refill-casks (hogsheads and butts) to let the distillery character shine through.

  • NOSE

    Burning limes and peat fires. Sweet chocolate lime notes push through the smoke, followed by ozone-rich sea-spray and rock-pool brininess. Gomme sweetness mixes with brine and citrus: preserved lemons and lemon boiled sweets.

  • PALATE

    Thicker and richer than the nose suggests, with a lemon sherbet and toffee fudge kick up front. Leather and dark sweetness carry on underneath, laced with chocolate and sweet espresso, while zesty lemon and lime float on top. Earthy smoke and cocoa build along with chocolate icing sweetness.

  • FINISH

    Mint choc chip, damp ferns and lingering lime zest.

  • Alc: 56.4%
