Tasting Notes

Details

NOSE: Charred oak timbers, sawdust and voluptuous fruit backed by subtle milk chocolate and vanilla. Grainy new make, developing burnt caramel, subtle spent match and a slight sapid, earthy dampness. A trace of ripe red apple and plum and smoked fish dressed in appley olive oil. PALATE: Hot and sweet. Searing, woody dryness, then calmer with mentholic chocolate notes and comforting honey underscored by a subtle chilli-like heat. A faint sawdust note gives way to charred astringency, acquiring notes of gritty cocoa against an espresso background. FINISH: Quietly persistent with tart red-berry notes, cedar and a spicy, smoky ginger warmth. Leaves the palate minty, with a fruity coffee note and a sprinkling of salt.

Lagavulin Distillery

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.
