We tasted Lagavulin 12 (2018 Limited Edition) at Meeting No. 84 on September 26, 2019. We rated it very highly at 3.43 out of 5. Lagavulin 12 (2018 Limited Edition) ranks 28th overall in Scotch. At a street price of $130, this spirit is on the pricier side given the our rating of it.
This is great. Nose is tar and iodine, with a good amount of peat smoke. Tastes nutty, with darker fruits and sherr. Finish is medium. With some water, this was amazing! All the caramel and vanilla from the bourbon barrel come out.
Potent burn surprising levels of funk. This peat reminds me of a more subtle version of the Jamaican rum funk.
Like a blind date where personalities clashed from the first hello, this one is not a match. Way too opinionated and argumentative for my taste.
