Lagavulin 12 year Special Reserve
20 cl / 40%
This 12 year old natural cask-strength Lagavulin comes from a whitewashed jumble of buildings by the sea on Islay's rocky southern shore. It's pungent smoky and maritime aromas and taste are best appreciated with two parts still water to one part whisky. Any cloudiness is normal in an unfiltered cask strength malt.
