Lagavulin 16 Year Old

Product Description

Islay

Very dry nose, Lapsang Souchong and TCP. Big. Very peaty starting sweetish but finishing very dry. Not for the faint hearted!

Lagavulin is one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland starting out in 1742 and by the late 170's, ten illicit stills were working in the region. By the 1830's only two remained and they joined forces in 1837 to form Lagavulin which means 'the hollow where the mill is' and was once the stronghold of the Lord of the Isles

The distillery is found in a small bay on the south of the isalnd of Islay, near the ruins of Dunyveg Castle. It was from here that 1,000 Islaymen set sail to fight alongside Robert the Bruce at Bannockburn in 1314, and in this bay the Macdonalds maintained their power base as Lords of the Isles until they were finally driven out by the Campbells three centuries later.

Surprisingly low intensity of aroma initially on the nose with some discernable smoke to start. Generally quite closed. Some cognac and cooking chocolate and an interesting scent of clover flowers. Continues quite closed when water is added but then a smokiness appears as do notes of Lapsang Suchong tea. On the palate, the primary taste starts sweet (nougat) and finishes darkly smoky (coal smoke). The flavour immediately gives away the whisky's provenance - it can only be from Islay.
