Lagavulin 1995 – Feis Ile 2014 edition

It seems Feis Ile 2104 was ages ago, but It was really only a month or so ago. This year (like too many) I was not able to attend (but planning on going next year!), but with a little help from my friends from the amazing #whiskyfabric, I was able to arrange a sample of each of the FE bottlings, …

More Whisky Geekery : Lagavulin 16 Vs. Redistilled 16

Time for another H2H dramming session, this time i chose two staple drams (i guess no one would argue the Talisker 10, and Laga 16 are not essential whisky bar bottles eh?) that any whisky lover should have handy: Talisker 10 and Lagavulin 16. Let’s start with the Lagavulin.

Lagavulin 16, 43% abv , £42

Quick Dram : Lagavulin ‘Distillery Only’ 2010 CS

Lagavulin. One of my favourite Islay distilleries, has only a few expressions available (12CS , 16 , 16 DE to name the most common), and every new expression released is a reason to celebrate.
