Lagavulin Whisky Distillery

Lagavulin was founded by John Johnston in 1816 and it sits on Islay's southern coast, nearby the legendary Ardbeg and Laphroaig distilleries. Today, the distillery is known for producing the world's smokiest whisky, notable for its lapsang souchong-like flavour. Thanks to this wonderful character, Lagavulin was actually the best-selling Islay single malt until 1998, when Laphroaig took the lead. Details such as the very long distillation and the quality of the sherry casks help turn the smoky giant into a balanced, refined whisky. In fact, Lagavulin is now having some difficulty keeping up with demand for its single malt lovers, especially as so much of the whisky produced at the distillery goes to Diageo's blends.
