Sensory Tasting Experience

To celebrate our bicentenary at Lagavulin we created an exclusive Lagavulin tasting kit available only at the distillery. Complete with 5 whisky samples and 7 aromas and flavours the kit allows us to delve into the character of the whisky as the guide talks you through the process of bringing Lagavulin to life. You'll be given a kit of your own to take home and experience whenever it suits you.
