Lagavulin 16 year old 20cl Description

An Islay Malt, this is from one of Scotland's 'essential' distilleries, on a cramped, chaotic, wildly romantic site. Demand heavily exceeds supply. The intense character comes from their own richly peaty water supply; the heavily peated barley; the unusually long fermentation - up to 75 hours; and the slowest distillation of any Islay malt.

Knowledge Bar

Lagavulin Distillery was founded in 1816 by John Johnston. The name comes from the Gaelic "Laggan Mhouillin" meaning "hollow where the mill is". Control passed to Sir Peter Mackie, owner of the legendary "White Horse Distillers", in 1890 with a second distillery, Malt Mill, opening in 1908. Due to an explosion and fire in 1952, the distillery was rebuilt and the mash tuns brought entirely under cover for the first time. Malt Mill was closed and the stills transferred to Lagavulin still-house in 1962. All four stills were converted to steam heating in 1969.
