Lagavulin 1996 Distillers Edition

Lagavulin distillery is one of the quintessential Islay producers, built in the early 19th century before eventually finding itself in the hands of White Horse blenders and their infamous proprietor, Sir Peter Mackie. It has truly captured the imagination of the whisky world in modern times, with the 16 year old becoming an instant (if unexpected) favourite when introduced as one of United Distillers' Classic Malts in 1988. The company had not expected the smoky flavours to be as popular as lighter offerings such as Dalwhinnie and Glenkinchie. Lagavulin was also home to the legendary (and near mythical) Malt Mill distillery in the first half of the 20th century.

Launched in 1997, the Distillers Editions are cask-finished twists on the Classic Malts. The annual Lagavulin expression has spent a second maturation period in Pedro Ximenez sherry casks.

This is the 2012 release that was distilled in 1996.
