Lagavulin 21 Years Old is a rare edition limited to 2772 bottles. Lagavulin 21 is coastal, wild and marine, signed with a hallmark peat sharpness, with the great elegance and wisdom of its age.

Extremely smooth, Lagavulin 21 Years Old evokes an orange marmelade mingled with red fruits and bitter chocolate, with a briny ocean rising through a wood fire, and coating flavours of caramel, spices, cherries.

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.

Colour: intense gold.

Nose: smooth, with caramelised raisins and smoke, opening on red fruits (redcurrants, elderberry) and creamy butter.

Palate: full, refreshing and voluptuous, coating the palate with bittersweet notes of caramel, and candy apple. A warmth from the wood cradles a handful of nuts, bitter chocolate and gives way to briny notes.

Finish: deep, with a lasting note of charred wood accompanied with a pot of baked apples and cafe latte.
