Lagavulin 1991 Single Sherry Cask / Bicentenary Edition

A single cask Lagavulin released in 2016 to celebrate their bicentenary year.

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.

This whisky was distilled in 1991 and filled into a single ex-Sherry butt before being bottled in 2016. One of 522 bottles.
