Lagavulin 16 Year Old (1x 70cl)

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. Lagavulin Single Malt Scotch whisky has the longest distillation and maturation of any in the Classic Malts Collection. It simply will not be rushed. Crafted by the people of Islay, it carries within it their intensity and their attitude that if something’s worth doing, it’s worth making time for and doing right. And, in 2016, we celebrate 200 years of making time at Lagavulin. The date of the first official distillation is 1816, though there’s no doubt that locals would have been producing their own whisky there for generations. Since that first batch, many have fallen in love with its rich textures, intense flavours and remarkable nose of smoke, brine and sweetness.

Lagavulin 16 Year Old has a deep amber gold colour. The nose is full of intense aromas, peat smoke with iodine and seaweed and a rich, deep sweetness. This is a full, rich bodied whisky. Flavours of dry peat smoke fill the palate with a gentle but strong sweetness, followed by sea and salt with touches of wood. There is a long, elegant peat-filled finish with lots of salt and seaweed.

Describing Lagavulin 16 Year Old as a roaring bonfire from the coast of Islay, describes the sensations you feel when enjoying a dram of this comforting yet challenging whisky. Lagavulin's mighty flavours are delicious when combined with Gorgonzola, Roquefort or Stilton – or any other aged blue cheese.
