Lagavulin 1995 Casks of Distinction 23 Year Old #9001
Diageo's Casks of Distinction is the private sale of individual casks of rare and exceptional Single Malt Scotch Whisky from their extensive stocks in Scotland. Hand-selected by a team of whisky experts under guidance from Master Blender Dr. Craig Wilson, each cask is entirely unique and incredibly rare. Each Cask of Distinction is chosen on the basis of their quality, representing the most exceptional and singular expression of the distillery’s character.
This is a vatting of specially selected 1995 vintage Lagavulin, married together in select European oak cask #9001.
The cask was chosen by Vincent Leung of Ginger, and Rex Tong of Whisky Lovers HK. It yielded 396 bottles.
Lagavulin distillery is one of the quintessential Islay producers, built in the early 19th century before eventually finding itself in the hands of White Horse blenders and their infamous proprietor, Sir Peter Mackie. It has truly captured the imagination of the whisky world in modern times, with the 16 year old becoming an instant (if unexpected) favourite when introduced as one of United Distillers' Classic Malts in 1988. The company had not expected the smoky flavours to be as popular as lighter offerings such as Dalwhinnie and Glenkinchie. Lagavulin was also home to the legendary (and near mythical) Malt Mill distillery in the first half of the 20th century.
