In 1816, local farmer and distiller John Johnston founded the first legal distillery at Lagavulin (pronounced Laga-voolin, after the Gaelic Laggan Mhouillin, "the hollow where the mill is"). Today the four onion shaped stills at Lagavulin are neatly tucked into a whitewashed jumble of buildings by the sea on Islay's (pronounced Eye-lay) rocky southern shore, guarded by the imposing ruin of Dunyvaig Castle. 

Released in 2017 to celebrate Feis Ile (Islay Festival), the distillery went against convention with this 16-Year-Old Lagavulin, double maturing the whisky in Moscatel wood instead of bourbon, Oloroso or PX matured casks we’ve come to love. It divided the Laga enthusiasts at the time but went on to sell out and be a very successful release.

Bottled at natural cask strength. Each cask was hand selected by Iain MacArthur and was sold exclusively at Lagavulin distillery during the festivities.
