Wow, that's heavy stuff, a Cask Strength at this young age. Did you like it ? How much water did you add, if any ? I'm curious because that baby sleeps unopened on a shelf.[/QUOTE]
I've had a couple of bottles of this over the years.
I don't put anything in it - but that's a matter of personal taste - a few drops of distilled water would probably be good.
If you like Lagavulin 16 - then 12 cask strength is very nice - its still a peat bomb but pretty smooth for its strength.
On a tour there in 2004 I tasted the raw product as it was going into casks for a 12 or 16 year sleep - the colour was, of course, clear - but the peatiness was profound. We were told that it was in the range of 63 or 64%.
