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 is a monster of a dram. All Lagavulin Whiskies are classic examples of the heavily peated Islay Whisky. Lagavulins are normally offered 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 — about 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.
