It's always good to try something different so when i was offered this prickly and Elements of Islay Lg2 i was over the moon.
This Lagavulin 12 Year Old was bottled as part of the 2016 Diageo Special Releases and tasted at their launch event in London.
Many thanks to my very good friend Steve Prentice from Somerset Whisky for the kind sample of this Lagavulin 18 year old which was the Feis Ile bottling for Lagavulin in 2016.
I've been through a few of Diageo's Distillers Edition bottles and been very impressed with them thus far and this Lagavulin 1995 Distillers Edition is no different.
This is the limited edition 200th anniversary bottling of an 8 year old which I was really excited about trying so when the opportunity to get some for myself I jumped at it.
Thanks to Steve (@steveprentice) from Somerset Whisky for sharing this lagavulin 2014 Feis Ile bottle with me.
