Good news: You've got impeccable taste in liquor. The not-as-good news? It means it's currently out of stock. Add this bad boy to your wish list and we'll let you know if it comes our way.
Lagavulin 12 YO Cask Strength is a spicy, peaty test of true grit. 
 
If you know your Islay single maltsand we don't doubt it — then you know what to expect. The entire Lagavulin line has that savory-sweet smokiness that Islay lovers love to love; the unique character won them more medals than the Brazilian soccer team.
 
John Jonston and Archibald Campbell “officially” started making Whisky in 1816. The distillery is famous for their extra-long, low & slow distillation process and the unique, pear-shaped stills. Islay Whisky fans love them for producing an exceptionally smooth, sophisticated, and flavorful single malt.
 
Lagavulin 12 Year Old Single Malt Cask Strength Scotch Whisky is a monster of a dram. All Lagavulin Whiskies are classic examples of the heavily peated Islay Whisky. Lagavulins are normally offered it in 8 YO and 16 YO varieties — along with a few special "wood" expressions. But for a few months each year the distillery issues a limited edition of 12 year-old Whisky at cask strength — nearly 115 proof. 
 
So imagine a smoky, spicy, peated single malt aged by the salty shore and then turn the volume up to 11. That is what we have here. Drink it neat to prove your post-pubescence or, as we recommend, add a splash of water and savor the enhanced tastes of Sublime.

If there was ever a 10 this is it! Smoky, peaty and medicinal, with a superb balance of sweetness.

As good as the 16y old and cask strength. Can it get any better? Absolutely recommended. Do not miss out on this heavy weight among the Islay malts.
