Description

This stunning single cask charity bottling from Lagavulin is the culmination of its 200th anniversary celebrations, and will benefit Islay and the people who live there. This is Bottle Number 1/522 of a one-off release limited to just 522 bottles.

The full proceeds received by Diageo from the auction of the Lagavulin 1991 Bottle Number 1/522 will be donated to Islay Heritage (OSCR No. SC046938) to fund projects on Islay which are designed to enhance the knowledge and understanding of the rich and diverse history of Islay.

The nose has charred oak timbers, sawdust and voluptuous fruit backed by subtle milk chocolate and vanilla. The palate is hot and sweet. Searing, woody dryness, then calmer with mentholic chocolate notes and comforting honey underscored by a subtle chilli-like heat. The finish is quietly persistent with tart red-berry notes, cedar and a spicy, smoky ginger warmth. Leaves the palate minty, with a fruity coffee note and a sprinkling of salt.

Condition

Four expert whisky writers: Dave Broom, Ian Buxton, Colin Hampden-White and Charles MacLean have donated their handwritten tasting notes in a one-off, leather-bound notebook to accompany bottle 1/522.

The winning bidder will be offered the opportunity to have the bottle or box signed by Lagavulin distillery manager Georgie Crawford and the distillery team.

A 10cl tasting sample will also be provided.
