Lagavulin 16 Year Old Single Malt

Posted on 08 April 2009

With a distinctive reputation and even more distinctive taste the Lagavulin 16 year old is one of our favourites, and with one of the cheapest 16 year old whisky prices you can’t go wrong!  The Islay representative in the ‘Classic Malts’ series is a deep, dry and exceptionally peaty bruiser. Probably the most pungent of all Islay malts, Lagavulin is not for the faint-hearted but inspires fanatical devotion in its many followers.

Part of the triumvirate of heavily-peated southern Islay malts, alongside LVMH’s Ardbeg and Beam Global’s Laphroaig, Lagavulin was officially founded in 1816 by John Johnston (although illicit distillation is said to have been carried out on the site since the mid-eighhteenth centrury) and has been the Islay representative of Diageo’s Classic Malt selection since 1987.  The histories of Lagavulin and Laphroaig have been closely tied together, with Laphroaig said to have been founded by the son of the founder of Lagavulin.
