2016 is the 200th anniversary of the founding of Lagavulin, and this bottle has been released in honour of the managers who have made the distillery what it is today. Aged for 25 years in sherry casks, it's a big and rich dram, with layers of smoke and dried fruit, all wrapped up in a bottle listing the name of each of the distillery managers.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes by Billy Abbott (TWE)

    • Nose

      Leather, salty peat, seashells, salted butter and sharp sea-spray. Rounded Crunchie-bar sweetness and fruity notes sat underneath, with sultanas, rich fruit cake and dark chocolate. Punchy medicinal notes and bung cloth are balanced by elegant waxed jacket notes, barley sugar, fruit gums and a hint of barrel char.

    • Palate

      Elegant, rounded and old, with youthful flashes. The waxed jackets from the nose sit at the centre, surrounded by a first layer of waxy apples and floral notes. Out from there there’s lemon and orange zest, and black pepper. Warm leather, loam and soft barrel char bitterness follow, with bung cloth, soft oaky notes and coal smoke following. Finally, there’s fruit, with apples, singed pears and tropical hints peaking out from behind the smoke.

    • Finish

      Barrel char, wet peat and dark chocolate, with hints of pine and soft, lingering sweetness.

    • Comment

      An excellent dram, combining the elegance of old Lagavulin with flashes of youthful feistiness.

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    • Appearance

      Deep, red-hued chestnut. Slow, lingering.

    • Palate

      A voluptuous, oily texture, with a bitter-sweet and gingery, slightly drying start. Intense, with masses of charred wood, oak-smoked meats, honey, burnt treacle tart and ash. Then, refreshing spearmint. Salty, then sweet, with water; gentle peat and spearmint. Now it’s soft, comforting and relaxed.

    Is this perfection? It must be close – an exceptional whisky

    The price was heavy but the payoff makes it worth it. I think it has a depth and complexity that makes a fitting celebration to the distillerys long history of excellent scotch. If you can find a bottle get one.
