Lagavulin 16 Year old 50cl

TASTING NOTES:

  • Color: Lagavulin 16 years 50cl has a deep amber
  • Odour: Shows strength and refinement. Smell of bergamot surrounded by a complex of sophisticated sweeter, creamy and chocolaty aromas. For longer strokes resemble lemon and white pepper. With water, the scents include cereal and toast nuts but the smoky fragrance always returns.
  • Taste: Dry at first, offset by the sweetness of the sherry. Then develops oily, and particularly provides slightly brackish peaty and emerging aggressive strokes and sustained attack. Leave a mild tingling on the tongue. With water, the taste is clean gently, bringing a sophisticated smoky taste.

The Producer

Lagavulin Distillery

Lagavulin Distillery

The distillery of Lagavulin officially dates from 1816, when John Jonston and Archibald Campbell constructed two distilleries on the site. One of them became Lagavulin, taking over the other—which one is not exactly known. Records show illicit distillation in at least ten illegal distilleries on the site as far back as 1742, however. In the 19th century, several legal battles ensued with their neighbour Laphroaig, brought about after the distiller at Lagavulin, Sir Peter Mackie, leased the Laphroaig distillery. It is said that Mackie attempted to copy Laphroaig's style. Since the water and peat at Lagavulin's premises was different from that at Laphroaig's, the result was different. The Lagavulin distillery is located in the town of the same name.
