Lagavulin 12yo Cask Strength 2012

If you have tried Lagavulin 16yo, 8yo and distillers edition already, this could be your next step.

Be ready to be blown away by the beauty of this dram. For us, the Lagavulin 12yo Cask Strength, is crafted to perfection. These notes are about the 2012 bottling.

Tasting notes


Fresh, fruity barley, tropical fruits, toasted oak with a salty sea breeze, very pleasant!


Sandy, biscuits, smoked pineapples, ripe orchard fruits, charred oak.


Smokey barley, coppery fruits, mainly ripe yellow fruit, beautifully balanced, smoked oak and minerals. A warm whiff of a smoking match and embers.

It’s sweet but not musty, fresh but not sour. A perfect balance between fruits and smokey flavours. This is how I like my Lagas!
