Lagg Inaugural Release Batch #2 Ex-Oloroso Sherry Casks, 50% abv

Categories: , , , SKU: WOLMS0050022O120


Lagg is a newly opened distillery on the South Isle of Arran that was built in 2017, some 22 years after Arran distillery opened at Lochranza on the north side of the island. While Arran’s classic whisky style is unpeated,  they distill a small amount of peated malt every year for its Machrie Moor expression. In opening Lagg distillery on the south side of the island, Isle of Arran Distillers will shift all production of peated whisky to its new site, a distillery that will be dedicated to the exploration of peat. The Inaugural Releases are the first 3 batches of whisky to ever be bottled at the newly opened distillery. They introduce Lagg’s signature house style, a heavily peated whisky, made using barley with a phenol content of 50ppm.

Colour: Russet muscat/Tawny.

Nose: Medium intensity. Earthy peat smoke. Lots of sweetness and nuttiness coming through. Cocoa, some fruitcake. A real earthy note.

Palate: Creamy and thick. Big hit of the peat. Certainly, doesn’t feel its ABV! Some chewy toffees and red fruits.

Finish: Medium-Long. More peat, classic bonfires. Oaked tannins and a hint of sweetness. Touch of salted caramel and caramelised sugars.
