Distilled in 2002 and bottled in 2018 following a finishing period in Pedro Ximinez casks. The big boy of peaty Islay whiskies with a rich finish from the sweet sherry casks. Brilliant stuff.
Lagavulin is one of a trio of distilleries sat on the south coast of Islay, producing some of the smokiest whisky Scotland has to offer. Founded on Islay’s south coast and situated between Ardbeg and Laphroaig, legal distilling was started at Lagavulin in 1816 by John Johnston. A second distillery shared the site which was first bought by the same family in 1825, before production was absorbed into Lagavulin in 1837.
