Lagavulin 16 Years Old 70cl 43°
This whisky has won a double gold medal, in the category for whiskies aged between 13 and 19 years old, at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2018.
Lagavulin offers the most intense, peaty and rich whisky from the Classic Malts Selection. Lagavulin is marked by the peat smoke and iodine, signature of the southern coast of Islay. The aromatic richness expressed makes it a bewitching spirit.
Lagavulin 16 years old is a Single Malt aged in oak barrels for at least 16 years that possesses intense flavours, smooth and smoked at the same time, from which rise notes of marine seaweed and dried fruits.
This Classic Malts & Food gift box allows you to discover new flavours around richness and diversity of Single Malts Scotch whiskies. For exemple, the alliance of Lagavulin 16 years old and the french cheese roquefort is like a clash of the titans. This sheep cheese, both intense, tender and salty, is an exceptional product. With this Single Malt a real alliance is born, thus linking Scotland with the french region of Causses. The strong character of both products are competing in a surprising harmony in order to offer to your palate an exceptional roundness and smoothness with woody and peaty notes.
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.
