Lagavulin 20 Year Old Fèis Ìle 2020 is matured in a carefully selected mix of refill and PX/Oloroso seasoned casks, this year’s Fèis Ìle 2020 edition of Lagavulin has been expertly tuned to give its own unique and memorable performance. Just 6000 bottles will be released.

Appearance 18 carat gold

Nose Feisty, with initial prickle and a spicy top note. Water brings up those pungent Lagavulin aromas of cake mix, digestive biscuits, linseed oil and eucalyptus. Scented bonfire smoke.

Body Medium to full

Palate At natural strength, smooth in texture with an immediately powerful sweet and smoky taste. Waves of smoke, and fruity in the development. Drying lightly. Good at natural strength and also with a drop of water, which makes this a richly textured, sweet and smoky dram.

Finish Long, warming and drying, leaving a pleasant smokiness on the breath. Water softens the effect, while still leaving a pleasantly smoky aftertaste.
