Lot number: 089-2164

Like most Islay malts, Lagavulin is definitely not for the faint hearted. The distillery was officially founded in 1816 (although illicit production on the site most certainly predates that), and produces malt with a signature style of earthy smoke and savoury undertones. 1962 marked a significant point in the distillery's history, as it was then bought by John Logan Mackie, whose nephew Peter went on to create the White Horse blend with Lagavulin at its heart.

These days the distillery, along with White Horse, belong to Diageo. However, it is generally agreed that while Lagavulin's core range remains reliably excellent, older expressions bearing the White Horse name still have the edge. An exclusive release for the Danish market.
