Distillers Edition Single Malt Scotch
Discover the distinct flavors of the islands of Scotland with a swill of Lagavulin Distiller's Edition Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Double matured in Pedro Ximénez cask wood, this is a sweet and mellow Lagavulin. Our 86 proof whisky has a full body and rich texture with a taste of clear, grassy malt and peat smoke. A very salty tang with a vanilla and coffee middle prepare the palate for the fruity and oaky finish that is incredibly long, even by Islay standards. The extraordinary and classic smoky flavor of Lagavulin Distiller's Edition demands to be served in a traditional whisky glass, neat or with a little water. Carrying on a 200-year-old tradition of distilling excellence, the Lagavulin distillery is said to be one of the oldest distilleries on Islay. Founded in 1816 by farmer John Johnston and later led by Peter Mackie in 1890, the name Lagavulin was to become the last word on the delicacy of Islay malts. Miles and miles of peat bog in the west of the island provide the raw material which imbues the barley with our iconic smoky flavor, and the rich peaty water from the tranquil Lochan Sholum in the hills above the distillery makes the flavors so unique. It takes time, but patience is our finest virtue and rushing good whisky is just not how we take care of things in Islay. Please drink responsibly.
