Lagavulin 19 Year Old Feis Ile 2019 Description
Three is the magic number, when it comes to this Lagavulin 19 Year Old Feis Ile 2019. This single malt whisky has been matured in not one, not two, but three casks! A sherry-treated American oak cask, a European oak puncheon, and a refill American oak cask, where, all in all, it spent nineteen years slowly picking up a huge array of flavours. This was released for the 2019 Islay Festival, and was a yield of only 6,000 bottles. Presented at a cask strength 53.8% abv, this was called a ‘super-charged Distillers Edition’. We don’t need to say how well it went down at the festival!
Nose: wisp of smoke, dried fruits, mild spices, vanilla.
Palate: creamy, full, black berries, fresh fruit, old oak.
Finish: long, slightly dry, fruit compote, increasing smoke.
