You will like to know that…

Each Distillers Edition expression undergoes a second (or ‘double’) maturation in casks that have previously held a fortified wine. A really distinctive and distinguished dram - the Pedro Ximenez sherry wood naturally has a big say.

A more mellow Lagavulin, still full of peat but not quite as deep or intense as its distinguished cousin. It’s a mellow contrast with the renowned intensity and big, booming finish of the 16 y.o.

Description of Lagavulin Distillers Edition

Lagavulin Distillers Edition

TASTING NOTES:

  • Colour: Golden Treacle
  • Flavour: Intense peat and vanilla. A raisin sweetness checks the smoke. Iodine-edged peat and crisp, roasty Malt. Satisfying and enticing.
  • Taste: Full and rich. Sweet and luscious; a clear, grassy Malt, then the peat attacks, smoke filling the mouth. A very salty tang at one point; the middle offers coffee and vanilla with a glimmer of fruit. Incredibly long, even for Islay. Fruit, peat and long-lasting oak.

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.
