Tasting notes

  • Tasting Notes Sweet Agave (1)


    soft with clean, fresh notes, faint hints of milk chocolate and lemon and then developing fragrant tea-scented smoke alongside nose-drying, maritime aromas, with subtle cereal. 

  • Tasting Notes Spicy Oak


    Sweet, smoky and warming, with a growing, smoky pungency, then dry, with more smoke. Charred, with minty, dark chocolate. 

  • Tasting Notes Vanilla (1)


    Smoothly, subtle minted smoke surrounds chocolate tannins, leaving a late drying note to emerge in time.

Get to know Lagavulin

Lagavulin is said to be one of the oldest distilleries on Islay and is world-renowned for its smoky, peaty whiskies. The windswept Isle of Islay instils a strength of character into everything it produces and it's there, nestled in a small bay that the beloved Lagavulin whisky has been made for over 200 years.


Miles and miles of peat bog in the west of the island provide the raw material which imbues the barley with that distinct smoky flavour. Not to mention the rich peaty water that runs down the brown burn from the Solan Lochs and into the distillery. In case you haven’t figured it out, the smoky, peated Lagavulin 16 is seen as the ultimate expression of this region.


There have been distilleries at Lagavulin since the 18th century; though it wasn’t until 1816 that farmer John Johnston founded the first legal operation. A year later a second distillery appeared, this one run by Archibald Campbell. The two were united under a Glasgow trader, and in 1887, Peter Mackie arrived at the distillery, under whose guiding hand the distillery, and the name Lagavulin, was to become the last word in Islay malt.


The definitive Islay malt

It's on Islay that one of the world's most intense, smoky and rich single malt whiskies has been made for over 200 years.

It takes time, but patience is Lagavulin's finest virtue and rushing good whisky is just not how they take care of things in Islay. With signature Lagavulin style, these malts continue to call you back to the shores of Islay.
