A much sought-after oily and rich single malt whisky with massive peat-smoke. This is a must experience and classy Islay whisky.
Gold Best in Class award winner International Wine & Spirits Competition 2011.
Intense peat smoke with iodine and seaweed and a rich, deep sweetness. Dry peat smoke fills the palate with a gentle but strong sweetness, followed by sea and salt with touches of wood.
Lagavulin Distillery was established in 1816 by John Johnston on the rocky south coast of the Isle of Islay off the west coast of Scotland. In 1908 Malt Mill Distillery was built next to Lagavulin Distillery but it closed in 1960 and although some of its buildings remain Malt Mill is now a lost distillery. Lagavulin is a malt whisky distillery which welcomes visitors at the Lagavulin visitor centre and offers distillery tours and participates in Feis Ile, the Islay Festival of Malt and Music, and sponsors the Lagavulin Islay Jazz Festival.
