Pronounced ‘lagga-Voo-lin’, after the Gaelic Laggan Mhouillin, meaning ‘the mill in the valley’, this 16 year old single malt is the Islay representative in Diageo’s 'Classic Malts' series. It is revered for its peaty but smooth character.

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 17/09/2013

Appearance:

Clear, deep old gold amber.

Aroma:

Earthy raisons and linseed oil rubbed leather with delicate Lapsang Souchong peat smoke, iodine and seaweed. A splash of water bolsters the smoky dried fruit.

Taste:

Surprisingly gentle giant with salty, smoky peat, dried fruit and fruitcake. With water: creamy barley-malt laced with peat, sea salt, smoked orchard fruit and vanilla.

Aftertaste:

Peaty black pepper, vegetal peat, medicinal smoke and sea saltiness.
