Description

History

Lagavulin is one of the most famous and important distilleries on Islay and in all of Scotland. Lagavulin rhymes with peat, of which the island of Islay is very rich; it is also one of the oldest distilleries in the country, apparently active since 1742. The style is easily recognizable and considered by most to be of the highest quality and consistency, which has remained almost unchanged since the first productions. The great power and richness of aromas that the whiskeys of this distillery express tend to require long refinements, among the longest of all the distilleries in Scotland; the classic product is Lagavulin 16 years, with the longest refinement among the classic whiskies.

Production method

To produce a single malt whiskey, the barley is first subjected to a malting process, during which the complex sugars/starches present in the cereal are broken down into simple sugars, suitable for alcoholic fermentation by the hands of the yeasts. This procedure takes place in three phases: the maceration of the cereal in water to moisten it, the germination, during which the barley, which has been removed from the water, absorbs oxygen and begins to produce the radicle and to germinate; this procedure in particular will release the enzyme which is responsible for the transformation of starches into simple sugars. Subsequently this procedure is interrupted and the cereal is dried, which often takes place using peat-powered ovens, which will give the typical hints of smoked or brackish. Subsequently, the dried barley is ground and added again with hot water for further extraction of the must; this is what will be subsequently fermented and then distilled. The specification provides that for the wording single malt the whiskey must come from a single distillery and be aged for at least three years in oak barrels in Scotland.

Alcohol content

48%

Tasting notes

Dark amber yellow color with honeyed notes. Intense notes of peat, smoked, brackish and seaweed on the nose, with notes of dried fruit and apricot jam. On the palate the whiskey is initially alcoholic, soft and ample but with a stormy and brackish character. Long finish that returns to the notes of peat and spices.

Usage

Perfect at the end of a meal or as a meditation; particularly recommended for lovers of whiskey or smoky or intense flavors in general. Highly recommended for fans!
