Character Goatson

The unbeatable king of Islay.

Lagavulin certainly is one of the most robust, peaty Islay Malts around. Established in 1816, the Lagavulin Distillery is located on the Isle of Islay, where you find miles of peat bog that provides the raw material that influences the Lagavulin.

Part of Dieageo’s 2021 Special Releases, Lagavulin 12 Year Old 2021 Special Release is inspired by the legend of the King of Islay. Once upon a time, there was a rampant lion on the grounds of an Islay castle. Eventually, the lion took over the crown with his exceptional flame and ferocity. Today, it represents the fiery Lagavulin distillery.

This bottling was aged for a dozen years in refill American oak casks. A classic Lagavulin 12, this golden liquid greets first with sweet citrus notes and salty flavors that develop into intense woody notes, rounded by a warm finish with lots of chili pepper and great smoke.

Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
