History

Many believe that is one of the oldest distilleries of Scotland; in 1742 it already had about ten illegal stills where one of the most unique Islay Malta Whiskies was developed. It was in 1816 when in Port Ellen, the farmer and distiller John Johnston founded the first legal distillery. After his death it was acquired by the merchant Alexander Graham who joined it with the Ardmore distillery, founded in 1817 by Archibald Campbell. James Logan Mackie & Co. were the successors in the direction of Lagavulin, making a successful growing business. Today, the Single Malt Scotch Whisky is developed by twelve men who make possible that the dark ocher Lagavulin is part of the six Classic Malts of Diageo since 1988: Lagavulin, Talisker, Oban, Dalwhinnie, Cragganmore and Glenkinchie.


Description

Lagavulin™ 16 old years is a complex whiskey that reflects on one hand the peat smoke typical of southern Islay, and secondly, a dryness that really stands out.


Tasting notes
  • Appearance: deep amber gold.
  • Intense peat smoke with iodine and seaweed and a rich, deep sweetness.
  • Palate: a rich, dried fruit sweetness with clouds of smoke and strong, barley-malt flavours, warming and intense. At the back of the mouth is an explosion of peppery smoke.
  • Finish: huge, long, warming and peppery with a distinch appetising sweetness.

Observations

Lagavulin is an intense, smoky-sweet single malt with seaweed flavours and a huge finish, aged in oak casks for at least sixteen years.
