  • Details

    Lagavulin 16yo is considered one of - if not THE - great Islay whiskies. It personifies the rugged beauty of the island, which an additional depth and complexity akin to the population who live there. But there are those that clamoured for a younger release featuring a wilder edge, so in turn brand owners Diageo released an annual limited edition cask strength version to keep them sated, as part of their regular Special Releases that come out towards the end of each calendar year.

    This year's bottling aims to be one of the most phenolic representations from the distillery - phenols are what provide the smoky element during the drying process of malting barley. Selected casks that had as high a phenol level as possible were married in a combination of virgin oak or those that had previously held other heavily peated Lagavulin. That virgin oak element adds a subtle vanilla sweetness, which accentuates the intensity of the coastal elements and ashy smokiness. Bottling at cask strength further emboldens the flavour profile - this is not for the faint of heart - but there is still great depth and complexity to be found even before water is added.
