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.

Lagavulin 8 Years

5 /5

Aroma: Remembrance of freshly cut grass, such is the feeling of cleanliness that offers home. He continues scented fireplace, wood fire and finally smoke. And it stops there, the naturalness of smoke is extraordinary and certainly addictive. Maybe they help the notes to gasoline. There is also a sweet background, light, from fruits and nuts.

Palate: Invade mouth smoke is recognized as a classic Lagavulin precisely the intention of the distillery so you can not ask for more. More fresh grass, rock and sea salt. As it should be.

Final: More than long, endless, invades every centimeter of the mouth, keeping notes, without saturating.
