Lagavulin 16 Year Old
Pungent and potent, this is the great Islay malt. With richly peaty, deep, smoky flavors, it has an intense, long, ambrosial finish.
Since 1816, Lagavulin single malt Scotch whisky has been made in a picturesque huddle of buildings on Lagavulin Bay. Perhaps the most beautifully situated of distilleries, Lagavulin makes arguably the most intense, smoky and rich whisky of all. For many, this is the definitive Islay malt. Above all, Islay means peat. Miles and miles of peat bog in the west of the island provide the raw material whose influence so characterises the south eastern Islay malts, of which Lagavulin is perhaps best known. Lagavulin's rich peaty water runs down the brown burn to the distillery from the Solan Lochs in the hills above the distillery.
