Lagavulin 8 Year Old Islay single malt Scotch whisky. 2016 limited edition to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the founding of Lagavulin distillery by John Johnston in 1816.
The second maturation in Pedro Ximinez brings a great fruity backbone to this Lagavulin, which balances greatly with the big bold classic smoke you would expect from Islay’s greatest distillery.
Lagavulin Single Malt Whisky
Lagavulin Distillery was established in 1816 by John Johnston on the rocky south coast of the Isle of Islay. In 1908 the Malt Mill Distillery was built next to Lagavulin Distillery but closed in the early 1960s and, whilst some of its buildings remain as part of Lagavulin, the Malt Mill is now a lost distillery. Lagavulin has four stills and produces superbly balanced peated whisky. The core range is limited to the Lagavulin 16 Year Old and Distillers Edition with a limited edition single cask bottling produced each year for Feis Ile, the Islay Festival of Malt and Music.
