Islay Region Whisky
Islay is probably best known for the huge amount of distilleries that nestle on the island, currently standing at 8, with many more planned, this island is a distillery haven for many a peaty, earthy lead single malt.
Lagavulin is notably one of the most sought after whiskies to come out of the Islay region, scoring highly in international spirit rating competitions year-on-year.
Lagavulin has a wonderful taste profile, with dried fruit sweetness, almost syrup laced, with delightfully strong punchy sherried raisins, clouds of smoke and strong, barley-malt flavours.
With strong salty, coastal drenched smoke, the finish is typically long, with huge, punchy peppery spice, warming fruit cake and a wonderfully appetizing sweetness.
