About the distillery
Lagavulin distillery is an Islay single malt Scotch whisky distillery in Lagavulin on the island of Islay, Scotland.
The standard Lagavulin single malt is 16 years old (43%), though they regularly release a 12-year-old cask strength variety, a Distiller's edition finished in Pedro Ximénez casks and 25- and 30-year-old varieties.
Lagavulin was owned by United Distillers & Vintners, which has now become part of Diageo plc.
The name of Lagavulin is an anglicization of the Gaelic lag a'mhuilin, meaning "hollow by the mill".
Pronunciation : "laga-voolin"
This is a bottle from Cask of Distinction #4882; a 1991 vintage Lagavulin from a single cask, distilled on 14th October 1991 and matured in a first fill sherry butt for 28 years before being bottled on 26th November 2019.
This is a unique opportunity to own bottle number 286 of 544.
Diageo's "Casks of Distinction" is a programme designed to offer the private sale of individual casks of rare and uniquely exceptional Single Malt Scotch Whisky, hand selected by Diageo’s team of four Master Blenders. Each Cask of Distinction is chosen on the basis of its age, rarity and/or special character. Diageo then assist their clients to bottle these casks at request, using the specially deigned bottles and labels which set these bottles apart.
