Lagavulin 12yo Special Release 2019

There she stands, with her pale skin, her light hazel eyes, her curvy body pleasing to the eye. I’m a difficult man to impress, but this was love at first sight.

Lagavulin is not very high on my list anymore. I’ll admit, I was pretty unimpressed by our previous encounters. I tried, I went all out, but lost my interest over time. Until I found her. So we met the other evening, she looked stunning as always. I was a shy guy, in fact, I still am. But my strategy is the attack, now and any other time. We went for a drink, obviously.

Still I took a more cautious approach, looks can be deceiving you know. But a few sips in I learned that her personality is just as beautiful as her looks. She is one in a million.
