Lagavulin 25 Year Old Bicentenary 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.
Released in 2016 as part of Diageo's Special Releases, this sherry cask matured, cask strength 25 year old Lagavulin was one of a number of limited editions produced in celebration of the distillery's 200th anniversary.
One of 8,000 bottles.
