I'll simply echo the sentiments of Dubois and johan brugge by saying that the Lagavulin 12 Year Old, for me, is (to quote my tasting notes) "one of life's essentials".
Add water drop by drop (as you see fit) and I'm sure you'll revise your assessment of this wonderful whisky!
As a foot note (and for those of us who still recall the 1980s issues of standard 43%ABV strength 12YO Lagavulin), these recent cask-strength releases of the distillery's make represent something of a throwback to that monster of a malt.
Tried the much admired 2009 at Whisky Live, 4th in a flight of six "Hebriedean"m whiskies on colin dunn's excellent masterclass, and fond it really sweet on the nose, like new make, almost sickly! i'm not particularly fond f new make...
Perhaps influenced by the sample of 3 week old GlenMoray peated I had just sampled.
Currently nursing the Elements Of Islay Lagavulin from TWE. A belter!
