The theme for the Special Releases this time was ‘Legends Untold’, and as such, this one features a lion on the label. But not just any lion, mind. It’s a lion with a flaming mane! This 12 year old Lagavulin single malt has been matured in refill American oak casks.
The palate is smooth, with a sweet taste turning acidic as the flavour develops. Expect a grand finale of smoke, with big recurring waves of wood-smoke, chilli pepper, and sweetness.
