Heritage
Lagavulin Bay, where the distillery now stands, was formerly a stronghold of the Lords of the Isles and the ruins of Dunnyveg Castle still stand proudly on the point. Since then, the bay was exceedingly popular with illicit distillers who eventually gave way to legal distilling in 1816.  At one time, Lagavulin was in the care of "Restless" Peter Mackie - the flamboyant character who went on to become one of the great names in the industry and founder of the White Horse blend (where Lagavulin plays its part). Lagavulin is a peat-reek-laden monster of a whisky which hides layer upon layer of complex flavours beneath its smoky shoreline.

What dish would this whisky best be paired with? 
Blue Cheese or dark chocolate.

Tasting Notes 
Nose:
 Intense peat smoke with iodine and seaweed and a rich deep sweetness. 

Palate: Dry peat smoke fills the palate with a gentle but strong sweetness followed by sea and salt with touches of wood. 
Finish: A long, elegant peat-filled finish with lots of salt and seaweed.
