Return of the HTHDM!!!!!!!

Postby Drammed » Fri Mar 19, 2010 11:08 pm

I take a couple months off and this part of the forums gets no love.

Well Let's get this place back on track with a Lagavulin civil war! For your voting pleasure may I present Lagavuiln 16 vs Lagavulin 12 yr CS. Do you like the smooth velvet jacket of the older or the raw mowhawk sheared, tattoo sportin' younger cask strength?

There can be only one!

At its best, the 16 Year Old walks away with the Gold as far as I'm concerned. But don't get me wrong. I LOVE the 12 Year Old, too!

Ahhhh, the Gold is the 21yo! :P

For the poll sake however I'll go with the 12yo Cask Strength
...The 16 at cask strength would be heaven!


Cheers!

Not much doubt here. I'll go for the 12yo. But indeed the 21yo is gold!

I love them both but my vote went for the 12, I'm not in the position where only just one can live in my cupboard :)

Now that a few vostes have been cast I will vote as well. I votes for the 12yr CS. I find the Cask Strength goes really well with peat and the 16 seems muted in comparison.

cheers

Exactly!!! And for me they MUST be young, at 10/12 yo they release the best of their pure peat flavours, seaweed and saltiness...So Laga12 deliciuos :P

I agree. I really enjoy the power of the 12yo over the 16.

I don't think there's any doubt that the 21yo is the best OB, but its unattainable for most (except Jazz Lover :mrgreen: ) these days.

I noticed that JM changed his rating of the 21yo from 80 to 96 (or thereabouts) in this years bible. About time.

Funny, I wasn't overly impressed with the first 21yo I had a couple of years ago. However, the more recent bottlings seem to be better. Was there only the one run? My changing tastes?
