    Distiller Notes

    2017 San Francisco World Spirits Competition Double Gold Medal Winner.

    Deep amber gold. The nose is intensely flavored, peat smoke with iodine and seaweed and a rich, deep sweetness. Full, rich bodied. Dry peat smoke fills the palate with a gentle but strong sweetness, followed by sea and salt with touches of wood. A long, elegant peat-filled finish with lots of salt and seaweed.

    Proof: 86

    Wine Enthusiast

    Soy sauce, olive brine, peat, honey, oloroso Sherry, brewer's yeast, bread dough, barley malt and cigar smoke in the bouquet. The flavor that magically includes the innate intense peatiness of Islay malts and the masterly employment of oak barrels phase defines “classy Islay.” Concludes sweetly, without sacrificing the tangy, astringent peatiness that is inherent. Gorgeous.

    Range: 90-95

    WH 92
    Whisky Advocate

    Lagavulin is a classic example of how smoke isn’t a blunt instrument that covers everything in a fog, but an element that works with all the flavors produced in distillation and maturation. Lagavulin isn’t ‘smoky,’ its peat moves into a weird territory of Lapsang Souchong tea and pipe tobacco, fishboxes and kippers. It smells of laurel and light cereal, but is always sweet. The palate shows more creosote, with hints of kelp and a little touch of iodine. Complex.

    “A good gulp of hot Scotch Whisky at bedtime–it’s not very scientific, but it helps!”

    Alexander Fleming, Scottish inventor of penicillin, prescribed it as a cure for the common cold. Today Single Malt Scotch Whiskies are prized by enthusiasts and aficionados the world over for their rarity, age and complexity. By definition these must be produced in Scotland from a single distillery and made entirely from malted barley, using a pot still. The appearance, aroma and flavor of a Single Malt Scotch Whisky can vary widely depending on whether it was produced in the Highlands, Lowlands Islands, Speyside, Islay or Campbelltown regions.
