Lagavulin 16 Years 70cl 43% vol. is the flagship of the Islay distillery. A whiskey that shows how the notes of peat and smoked do not have to eclipse the rest of notes. Lagavulin, with powerful notes of smoked and peat, envelops, with great elegance, the characteristic notes of distillation and barrels; Thick and rich, powerful notes of peat in contrast with sweet notes of malted barley, fruity notes also in contrast with the notes of oak.
Lagavulin, from the Gaelic "lag a'mhuilin", which translated means "the depth next to the mill", is located on the south coast of Islay Island, near Port Ellen from where they get the malt, in the village of Lagavulin, near Solum Lochs, distillery water supply.
Officially the Lagavulin distillery dates from 1816, when John Johnston and Archibald Campbell build two sister distilleries, side by side. Eventually one of them becomes Lagavulin and absorbs the other, of which little is known, shortly thereafter.
During the period up to ten illegal distilleries around Port Ellen were reported, however, in the nineteenth century problems would arise in the form of legal skirmishes with neighbouring distillery Laphroaig.
In 1847, Donald Johnston, owner of Laphroaig, falls into a tub of boiling whisky and dies, at that time Walter Graham, owner of Lagavulin, takes the reins of the two distilleries, Laphroaig and Lagavulin, while Dugald Johnston, Donald's son and an early age, prepares to take over the distillery.
A generation later, at the end of the nineteenth century, the two distilleries enter a legal cause, when Laphroaig cancels a trade agreement in which it had agreed to sell its whisky to Lagavulin for the production of blendeds, which at that time included White Horse, invented in 1890 by Lagavulin's owner, Peter Mackie.
After breaching the contract, in retaliation, Lagavulin decides to block Laphroaig's water supply, going to trial again, the resource fails in favor of Laphroaig this time, in response, a year later, Lagavulin hires the manager of Laphroaig with the aim of recreating the stills and thus producing an exact whisky to that of the neighboring distillery. Fortunately the attempt failed and today we can enjoy both distilleries, it can be said that the relationships between the distilleries today are much more cordial.
