A highly revered and sought-after Single Islay Malt is a big and bold, heavily peaty whisky from the Lagavulin Distillery. It offers some of the smokiest aromas you will find, with intense notes of sweet spices, mature sherry and creamy vanilla. On the palate it is rich and with big notes of iodine, malt, sherry and fruity sweetness alongside the peaty oak. A long, spicy and complex finish then completes the wonderful experience.

Nothing - sip straight over ice
LAGAVULIN is one of the three Kildalton Distilleries in the south of Islay and sits comfortably in between Ardbeg and Laphroaig at the "Hollow by the Mill". Lagavulin Distillery officially dates from 1816, though records show illicit distillation on the site as far back as 1742. Revered and highly-acclaimed, Lagavulin Single Malt Whisky is characterized by its strong peat flavour and iodine overtones. The iodine flavour tends to divide tasters into love it or hate it groups with no middle ground, and it may not be suitable for new Scotch drinkers.
