Lagavulin 26 Years Old 2021 Special Release 70cl 44.2°

Distillery : Lagavulin / Country : Scotland / Reference: : 24813

This 26-year-old Lagavulin, jewel in the crown of the King of Islay, is distinguished by its nobility, generosity and discretion, while being full of subtlety and intensity: an exceptional whisky like only Lagavulin, true maestro of Islay malts, can produce.

The fiery warmth and smouldering intensity of Lagavulin burn in this complex and powerful Single Malt which pays tribute to the illustrious region of Islay.

Its 26-year maturation in Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso barrels gives it powerful black, spicy and woody aromas intermingled with those of figs, all enveloped in an intense peat smoke.

The time has finally come to share this jewel.

The Special Releases series from Maison Diageo is a set of limited edition bottlings. This highly coveted collection is recognized and appreciated. For its 2021 edition, Diageo has chosen 8 cask-strength Single Malt Scotch whiskies from rare and original casks.

Built in 1816 on the South-East coast of Islay, not far from the ruins of Dunyvaig castle, old fortress of the Lord of the Isles, the Lagavulin distillery produces a Single Malt almost as legendary as the island where it was born.


Amongst Islay malts recognized for their peated and smoky character, Lagavulin is known for its complexity and depth: powerful, intensely peated, it is also rich, round and mellow. This double character is the key to appreciate the two new versions bottled at cask strength recently released by the distillery. The unique quality and style of Lagavulin whiskies ranks the distillery in the Classic Malts Selection. Created more than 20 years ago, this selection recognises Single Malts crafted in the tradition of iconic distilleries, and offers the most impressive whisky styles Scotland has to offer.

Nose: offensive iodine, black and woody aromas, accompanied by an oily sweetness, cooked figs and omnipresent peat smoke.

Palate: notes of salt and pepper, the peat smoke gains strength.

Finish: the vivid youth of the first impression gives way to a long, sweet and warm finish.
