All about making whisky
An expressive Lagavulin with a frank aroma and the characteristic flavour of an Islay malt, intense and direct: classic and well-structured with a precise balance of sweet cereals, mouth-watering refinement and smoked, volcanic dry notes, nimbly counter-balanced with lemon and mint.
Lagavulin was the first distillery to legally produce whisky on the Isle of Islay. Located to the east of Port Ellen, which provides it with its malted barley, Lagavulin produces a peaty malt in strict respect of the island’s traditions. Smoky, marine and delicately woody, Lagavulin’s character has become a veritable ambassador for the Islay malts, particularly thanks to the Lagavulin 16 Year Old, which was chosen to represent the Islay malts in the Classic Malts range, and which has, in the space of 20 years, become a veritable icon.
