- Palate : voluptuous, with an oily texture and light notes of ginger. Intense with woody aromas of meat cooked over wood-fire, honey and ash. Develops into mint aromas.
- Overall : long, full bodied, honeyed and elegant with a light note of wood smoke, followed by a refreshing eucalyptus aroma.
- The brand
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.
