The Lagavulin The Distillers Edition 16 Year old 1984 is a first-class whisky distilled in 1984. Then, Lagavulin has let it aged for 16 years until the drink entered the market in 2001 as Distiller's Edition. What makes this Scotch so special is his second ageing in Pedro Ximénez barrels that had previously contained sherry wines. This way, the usually rather smokey drink wins a fruity backbone. Today, this bottle has earned collector's value because it has become difficult finding it in stores. The perfect gift for whisky fans!

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.More about the Producer
