It tastes a lot like an older, wiser, learned-from-its-mistakes Lagavulin 8. A black cat smoking a candy cane cheroot St. Nick inadvertently rubbed against the sooty chimney on his way down with the presents.
[John: There’s not a Lagavulin 8, is there?]
[Stephen: Do you really need to ask?]
[John: But there’s a St. Nick, right? Right?!]
[Stephen: Yes, John. There is a St. Nick.]
The finish is a lot like the I’m-much-improved-over-the-2010-special-release-‘cuz-I’m-the-2013-special-release-Lagavulin-12.
The Lagavulin 12 Year 2014 Limited Edition is Pete Acropolis, star teammate of Lionel Messi–His nickname is ‘Acropolis Now!’ and fans shout it when they want him (or the Lagavulin 12) to enter the game. Acropolis Now!
