A fitting tribute to a great name.

Lagavulin is one of those classic Scottish single malts every true Whisky buff has to try. The story began in 1816 on the windy island of Islay, when John Jonston and Archibald Campbell first opened the distillery. They’re famous for their extra-long, “low and slow” distillation, which produces exceptionally smooth and flavorful Whisky.

The thing with Lagavulin is, you most probably either love it or you hate it. The strong peat flavor tends to divide opinion. But we can almost guarantee - if you like your malts smoky, you’re gonna adore Lagavulin. 

The Lagavulin 8 Year Old definitely possesses that full-on Lagavulin taste. We would even argue it’s even peatier and more intense than the classic 16 YO flagship.

Inspiration for the bottling came from Alfred Barnard, renowned historian and Whisky explorer, who tried a similar 8 YO Lagavulin back in 1880 and described it as “exceptionally fine.” We must say, we agree with Mr. Barnard. The Whisky is matured in ex-Bourbon casks and bottled at 48% alcohol. It’s a beautiful example of the amount of depth a relatively young Whisky can achieve with master distilling and casking. Last but not least – Lagavulin at this price point? It’s a no-brainer, really.

Corner
Scotch Whisky is almost never aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation, while many times ageing process and flavour finishing is concluded in various wine casks, such as sherry or port.
