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", translated from the Gaelic lag a'mhuilin. Lagavulin is pronounced as La-ga-voolin.
Lagavulin Distillery officially dates from 1816, though records show illicit distillation on the site as far back as 1742. Lagavulin has released a new 10 Year Old expression, a permanent addition to the Islay distillery’s core range, exclusive to global travel retail.
The single malt has been matured in a combination of ex-Bourbon, refill and newly-charred rejuvenated casks before being botted at 43% abv.
The whisky is said to be initially ‘sweet and salty’ on the palate with an ‘intense spicy and smoky finish’.
Dr Craig Wilson, master of malts and owner said: ‘The different wood types used have helped create a whisky with a fiery yet light, and smoky yet smooth character – one that is filled with surprising contrasts.
‘To many people, Lagavulin is the definitive Islay malt and, like other members of the family, this new expression has a charming exuberance.’
