LAGAVULIN 12 Year Old Special Releases 2022
The 21st release of Lagavulin 12 Year Old as part of the Diageo Special Releases, and a whisky that continues a long and rightfully praised heritage.
This year, a couple of extra components separate this from the pack. Firstly, the blending team selected extra smoky casks of whisky – they measure the phenol levels whenever a cask is filled, so can pick out extra-peaty whiskies if they need them.
And secondly, they added some new-oak-finished whisky to the mix, adding extra layers of spice to an already big and smoky dram.
