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: amber.

Nose: this spellbinding Lagavulin reveals an amazing pairing between an intensely peated Islay character and the lavish sweetness of Pedro-Ximenez.

Palate: a pronounced mouthfeel that begins with a soft hit glazed with peated and kelp flavours.

Finish: everlasting, even compared to Lagavulin 16 Years Old; mellow and round, rolling on waves of sandy dryness.
