Top reviews for Lagavulin 12 Year Old Special Release 2018:

― One of my absolute favorite things in the whole world. At 57.8% ABV this can be a bit spiky, but can still be enjoyed neat. Peaty, fruity, smoky, and light-colored. You can still get the sense of the new make spirit.

― Peaty, very smooth . Flavours are too good

― I love the Islay scotches; they're like swallowing a campfire. So, when I saw that not only does Lagavulin sell a 12-year-old scotch, but that it's somehow more expensive than the 16, I wanted to give it a try. I assumed the 12 would be a wilder version of the 16, like the campfire got out of control a little bit, but I was completely wrong. It's every bit as balanced as the 16, but with the smokiness just slightly subdued. Since I love smokiness, I was surprised by my reaction. I loved it. I'd say it's my favorite non-super-smoky scotch, and I don't think the flavor spiral does it justice. I think the vanilla and the sherry comes out a bit more than the smoke. Also, I definitely taste spicy, peppery-ness, and the phenols.
