The boldest and most badass Whisky of all time.
If you ever wondered where Lagavulin got its name, it's pretty straightforward: it's the name of the bay near one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland. Since then, the lavish and peaty water that runs down the nearby hills has been the blood of the distillery and its Whiskies.
While Lagavulin is known for pretty awesome expressions, this time they outdid themselves and created a Single Malt so intense and smoky, Bruce Willis called and asked if he can be its sidekick. The Lagavulin's peated barley has 20 times more exposure to peat smoke - it's like an office in Mad Men - and the Whisky is distilled twice, for 14 hours in total. This unbelievably smoky Spirit is then aged for 16 years in old school oak casks, and after that, it gets a fine PX Sherry finish. We don't know about you, but just writing this makes our mouth water. It's sweet caramel, vanilla and dates with a healthy dose of smoke. It's so intense you'll wear a knowing grin for a week.

Clear and grassy malt with an explosion of peaty smoke. A salt tang flows into coffee flows into vanilla.
Ridiculously long, fruity and peaty.
