Lagavulin Celebrates 2023 Islay Jazz Festival With 15 Year Old Whisky

Lagavulin Islay Jazz 2023 15 Year Old

Lagavulin is celebrating 25 years of the annual Islay Jazz Festival with the release of Lagavulin Jazz 2023 15 Year Old whisky. The Scotch will only be available at the distillery.  

This year’s festival, presented by Jazz Scotland and the Islay Arts Association, will run from September 15th – 17th, 2023 and feature performances from some of Scotland’s most exciting and creative musicians. 

“The Islay Jazz Festival is always a very exciting time for everyone on the island,” said Jordan Paisley, Distillery Manager at Lagavulin. “This year, to celebrate the festival, we’ve created a unique expression of Lagavulin that’s been influenced by the thriving Spanish jazz scene, finishing our whisky in Oloroso Sherry casks. The result is an exceptional bottling that introduces sweet, red-fruity notes, which are beautifully matched to Lagavulin’s signature smoke. “ 

Lagavulin Jazz 2023 15 Year Old offers elegant, smooth dried fruit and walnut flavors. Depth of and complexity arise from Lagavulin’s famously intense smoke meets the rich fruitiness created by the sherry casks, delivering a twist on the classically flavors of the iconic Islay distillery. 

Bottled at 53.9% ABV, Lagavulin Jazz Festival 2023 15 Year Old exclusive bottling will only be available for purchase at the Lagavulin Distillery, with a retail price of £250 per 70cl, and just 3,000 bottles available. For more information, head over to the brand’s official website.

Last year, Nick Offerman unveiled the Lagavulin Single Malt Scotch Whisky Charred Oak Cask Aged 11 Years, his third release with the Islay Scotch brand and the smokiest whisky yet from the collaborators.
