A much sought-after oily and rich single malt whiskey which has been double matured in sweet Pedro-Ximenez sherry casks.
Begins with sweetness, and ends with peat, smoke and hints of seaweed. Incredibly long finish even by Lagavulin standards, smooth and rounded, with waves of sandy dryness
Lagavulin Single Malt Whiskey
Lagavulin Distillery was established in 1816 by John Johnston on the rocky south coast of the Isle of Islay. In 1908 the Malt Mill Distillery was built next to Lagavulin Distillery but closed in the early 1960s and, whilst some of its buildings remain as part of Lagavulin, the Malt Mill is now a lost distillery. Lagavulin has four stills and produces superbly balanced peated whiskey. The core range is limited to the Lagavulin 16 Year Old and Distillers Edition with a limited edition single cask bottling produced each year for Feis Ile, the Islay Festival of Malt and Music.
