Lagavulin

Lagavulin 16 Year Old Scotch Whisky

This peaty Single Malt dates back to 1816, when John Johnston and Archibald Campbell each constructed a distillery on what today is the Lagavulin site. After Johnston died, Campbell consolidated the two, before selling it to malt merchant Alexander Graham. Today it continues to uphold the traditions of its past, using meticulous preparation to create powerful whisky. Their signature 16 year old malt has a strong peat, smoke and seaweed nose that is followed by a nutty complexity and light fruitiness. In the mouth characters of Charcoal, dry woodiness and iodine followed by chilli chocolate and a hint of toffee.

Lagavulin 8 Year Old 200th Anniversary Scotch Whisky

Released to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the founding of Lagavulin distillery by John Johnston in 1816, this eight-year-old is big and smoky, with sweet spice that becomes apparent with a drop of water. Inspired by the visit of Alfred Barnard to the distillery in the 1880's when he tried an 'exceptionally fine' eight-year-old from the distillery, this is a fitting tribute for the milestone.

Lagavulin 8 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky

An unusual age statement is inspired by Alfred Barnard's visit to the distillery in 1887 which became part of his book, “The Whisky Distilleries of the United Kingdom”. According to Diageo Director of Whisky Outreach, Dr. Nick Morgan, “At the end of the tour, he was given a taste of the whisky…he tasted an eight-year-old Lagavulin, which, of course, remember at the time was actually quite old…whiskies were considered to be venerable once they got around six years old in the 19th Century,” Morgan said in an interview with www.whiskycast.com. “He declared that whisky to be exceptionally fine, so our mission with this bottling was to find an exceptionally fine eight-year-old liquid which we thought Barnard would quite like if he were to be back here tasting it today.” Tasting note: Very pale straw gold showing considerable legs. Powerful and complex aromas include cocoa, sea spray, white pepper, dilute Elastoplast and lanolin followed by hints of citrus zest. Several minutes air contact accents the latent malt as well as dark chocolate. Concentrated but also surprisingly soft; almost creamy with grassy malt and a juicy vanilla, kelp and peppermint finish that goes long into the aftertaste. A departure from the 16, but terrific young malt. 48% Alc./Vol.

Glenkinchie Distillers Edition Double Matured Single Malt Scotch Whisky ( Bottling)

This bottle of Glenkinchie is apart of Diageo's 2022 Distillers Edition. The idea behind The Distillers Edition is to provide an alternative expression of each whisky; to add richness, complexity and interest in the form of a different ‘take’ on that whisky’s attributes. There are seven distinctive Distillers Edition expressions (including Lagavulin, Oban, Talisker, Caol Ila, Dalwhinnie, and more), the remarkable and complex Distillers Edition process, and the people who make it. An incentive to explore The Distillers Edition itself. The generous Glenkinchie has an appealing winey touch, which builds a dry, spicy, fruity & fuller bodied whisky on the grassy shoulders of the regular release. This shows what a Distillers Edition is all about. Whereas the classic 12-year-old bottling from Glenkinchie is all about fruit, vanilla and honey, this adds spice and dried fruit from sherry cask ageing. It was first matured in refill American and European oak casks and then finished in amontillado-seasoned charred American oak with heavily re-charred new oak end turning the mellow sweet Lowland malt into something altogether punchier. The nose is full of dried apricots and sultanas, with some toasted almonds and warming woody spice. On the palate is creamy malt, with some light fruitcake, green grapes and peppery spice.

An incentive to explore The Distillers Edition itself. A limited release made usually just once a year, the Distillers Edition of Lagavulin enjoys both rarity and superior quality. The mighty Lagavulin, in which the finishing imparts sweetness and texture, plus a spiciness that binds the smoky whole and makes this a whisky apart. This one sounds particularly great as Lagavulin from Islay has a great affinity with sherry so anything that turns up the sherry volume is ok by us especially if there’s some extra char involved. Second maturation takes place in Pedro Ximenz-seasoned re-charred American Oak with heavily re-charred ends. On the nose large helpings of peat are joined by dried fruit, raisins and some vanilla sweetness. the palate is of coastal smoke, with some salted toffee and more sherry character. On the finish oaky spices linger, along with lingering peat of course.

Lagavulin 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky 700ml (Special Release 2022) was matured in and blended from a mix of refill and virgin oak casks; both American oak.

The palate cranks things up a gear, with the heavily peated malt bringing a smoky dryness to proceedings, yet maintaining superb balance and sweetness.

Lagavulin Special Release The Flames of the Phoenix 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky Non-Vintage

Lagavulin Special Release 2022 The Flames of the Phoenix 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky 57.3% ABV, Islay For whisky aficionados and collectors, Diageos annual Special Release is unmissable. The 2022 edition is arguably the best yet, and this stellar cask-strength selection from Lagavulin is a definite highlight. This is an elemental Lagavulin crafted from virgin oak and their smokiest reserves, in which rich, peaty casks lead saltiness, spice and smoke on their eternal dance with deep sweetness. This year, the decision was made to make as smoky a Lagavulin as we could. The approach did change slightly during liquid development when the virgin oak casks were added as a top dressing, just to add a little spice to the character which complemented the smoke beautifully.- Diageo Master Blender Dr. Craig Wilson/strong>
