The definitive Islay malt—intensely flavoured, smoky and rich. The windswept Isle of Islay instils a strength of character into everything it produces and its here, nestled in a small bay that our beloved whisky has been made for over 200 years.

Double matured in Pedro Ximenez cask wood to magically accentuate and deepen every aspect of the intense, rich character of Lagavulin.

Serving Suggestion: 
Lagavulin Distiller's Edition reveals more of its intensity with a drop of water.

Region The distinguished brother from Islay’s coast.
Appearance Golden treacle.
Body Full bodied and rich in texture.
Nose Intense peat and vanilla. A raisin sweetness checks the smoke. Iodine-edged peat and crisp, roasty malt. Satisfying and enticing.
Palate A clear, grassy malt, then the peat lands – smoke filling the mouth. A very salty tang, the middle offers coffee, vanilla and fruit.
Finish Incredibly long, even by Islay standards. Fruit, peat and long-lasting oak. Very chewable.

Expert Reviews

Insights from some of the best in the business

The pedro ximenez cask finish certainly gives as much as it takes away when compared to the benchmark 16 year old. An array of complex ripe fruit, interwoven with notes of pot still rum, toffee, tar, seaweed, and brine on the finish. It seems logical to marry this big, smoky Islay whisky with an equally big, sweet, fruity sherry. In this case, the marriage works wonderfully.

John Hansell, The Whisky Advocate Summer 2008

What it loses in character it gains in a different dimension of distinctiveness.
