Lagavulin Distillery has sponsored the Islay Jazz festival since 2010.
The annual festival, which is promoted by Jazz Scotland and the Islay Arts Association, took place this year on 15-17 September at venues across the island, including various distilleries, Bowmore’s Round Church and Bruichladdich Hall.
The 2017 Lagavulin Islay Jazz Festival expression was matured in a combination of refill American oak hogsheads and first-fill American oak barrels.
It’s described as a sweet and typically peaty expression, with ‘hints of almonds, brazil nuts, pears and smoked ham’.
