An enduring classic of the peated Single Malt world, and rightfully so.

Lagavulin is undoubtedly one of the most robust, peaty Islay Single Malts around. Established in 1816, the Lagavulin Distillery is located on the Isle of Islay, with its miles of peat bogs that provide the raw material that influences the unique Whisky. It's crafted with precision and backed up by centuries of local distilling tradition. A slow fermentation (between 55 and 75 hours), slow distillation (around 5 hours for the first distillation and more than 9 hours for the second), and a long maturation ensure that Lagavulin develops all of its delicious richness and peaty characteristics, balanced beautifully by sherry, fruit, and spice notes. 

This beloved Single Malt spends 16 years breathing the sea-salt air, mainly in refill European oak casks. It's the quintessential Lagavulin. The classic, and the most popular in the Lagavulin range, it has won a Double Gold at the 2022 edition of the San Francisco World Spirits Competition AND too many hearts to count.

Intense nose with massive peat smoke and iodine. Rich sweetness with hints of fruity and sherry notes, vanilla, and Lapsang Souchong.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
A rich, dried fruit sweetness of the sherry character with clouds of smoke and strong, barley-malt flavors. At the back of the mouth is an explosion of salty and peppery smoke.

Finish
Huge, long, warming, and peppery with a distinct appetizing sweetness. Spice is balanced by peat and vanilla. A dash of water brings out Indian spices.
