Lagavulin 16 Year Old White Horse Distillers Ltd.
The single malt whiskies from Lagavulin, such as the legendary Lagavulin 16 Year Old, are amongst the world’s smokiest with thick lapsang souchon enveloping the palate without remorse. One of the trio of Ìleach distilleries gracing the isle’s South-Easterly shore, each sharing a characteristic peat smoke as well as being Scotland’s most pungent and perhaps most revered. In 1816, the Lagavulin whisky distillery was founded by John Johnston.
This increasingly rare, and ever popular, 16 Year Old 700ml bottling from Lagavulin of Islay was bottled by White Horse Distillers Ltd of Glasgow during the 1990’s.
A Lagavulin 16 Year Old bottled very early in its career as the Islay representative of the Classic Malts.
