Official Overview
Origin: Scotland, Islay
Type: Single Malt Scotch
ABV: 43.0%
AGE: 16.0 Years

This Islay Malt comes from a chaotic, wildly romantic site. Founded 1816 by John Johnston and named from the Gaelic Laggan Mhouillin or ‘Hollow Where the Mill is’, Lagavulin was taken over by the legendary ‘Restless’ Peter Mackie in 1890. Lagavulin is peat-reek-laden and hides layers of complex flavours beneath its smoky shoreline.

Colour: Deep amber gold.
Official Nose: Intense peat smoke with iodine seaweed and a rich, deep sweetness.
Official Taste: Rich dried-fruit sweetness with clouds of smoke and strong barley-malt flavours.At the back of the mouth, an explosion of pepper.
Official Finish: Huge, long,warning and peppery; an appetising sweetness.
