Lagavulin 12 Year Old Cask Strength

Top 10 Single Malt Scotch

Lagavulin 12 Year Old Cask Strength, one of's Top 10 Single Malt Scotch picks, is a special edition fan-favorite

Lagavulin 12 Year Old Cask Strength

Lagavulin is the whisky for people who revel in sucking the marrow out of life. This cask strength Single Malt needs every bit of its extra punch to support the nose and palate. The former is an intoxicating and aromatic potpourri of peat, melon-y sea foam, pipe tobacco and Alsatian Riesling. The palate is rich, plummy, sweet, peaty and burnt-rubber-y, but in a good way. This stunning special edition was so well-received that Lagavulin Distillery is producing it as an ongoing mark for its loyal followers. It's not just one of our favorites; ask Mr. Brian Cox.
