The Lagavulin 26 Year Single Malt Scotch Whisky is the longest aged expression in Diageo's 2021 Special Releases. This scotch was fully matured in first-fill Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso sherry seasoned casks. Having been aged in these casks, the natural notes of deep sherry and intense peaty notes have been heightened, lending this whisky an intensified and diverse flavor profile.
This 2021 Special Release follows the 'Legends Untold' theme by featuring 'The Lion's Jewel' through custom art work by Ken Taylor. This release also includes a QR code for an immersive tasting experience that gives life to the art work and the legend.
The rich chestnut colored scotch carries scents of oak and smoke, baked figs, marzipan, and woody wine. The forward flavors of oak and tar reach out first, stepping aside for the sweet, oily honeycomb and salt & pepper. The sweet and savory taste of the Lagavulin smoke rounds out the flavors, while leading to the long, slightly smoky and sweet finish.
This Special Release consists of only 7,542 bottles - processed at 44.2% ABV - 88.4 Proof
