LAGAVULIN AND CAOL ILA LAUNCH FÈIS ÌLE 2022 LIMITED EDITIONS 

To celebrate the return of the 2022 Islay Festival of Music and Malt, Fèis Ìle, iconic Islay distilleries Lagavulin and Caol Ila announce the launch of the festival exclusive Single Malt Scotch whiskies. Both are available to purchase at their respective days during the festival and malts.com.

This year the Lagavulin and Caol Ila Fèis Ìle bottlings also celebrate the reunion of whisky fans from all over the world, as they come together for this key moment in the whisky calendar for the first time in two years.

Each bottle was carefully selected by the distillery teams to reflect the distillery’s history through a powerful twist on the renowned core expressions.

Lagavulin Fèis Ìle 2022 12-Year-Old

is an unusually rich, full-bodied and sweet-spicy dram. This unique bottling’s creamy touches blend into maritime notes of crystalline salt and tide-line seaweed joined by hints of medicinal salve. The long, intense and lightly drying finish lingers with tastes of smoke edged spice. Add a good splash of water to emphasise the smooth sweetness and the ashy smokiness, now backed more respectfully by the oaky wood-spice. 

Jordan Paisley, Lagavulin Distillery Manager said,

“I’m proudly celebrating my first Fèis Ìle as Lagavulin’s Distillery manager and I’m excited to reveal such an unusual bottling. We are all looking forward to welcoming Lagavulin fans back to Islay after two years and reuniting together for a dram and fantastic music.”

Caol Ila Fèis Ìle 2022 15-Year-Old

full-bodied bottle opens with lightly oily and smooth texture and delightfully clean yet unexpectedly sweet notes. A slight taste of salt mid-palate adds balance as the peppery kick creeps in and the oak spice gently makes its presence felt. A drop of water brings out the smooth sweetness perfectly combined by the oaky wood-spice smokiness.

Samuel Hale, Caol Ila Distillery Manager said,

“We are so happy to be hosting Fèis Ìle on Islay this year and continue our annual celebrations to honour such a remarkable bottling. After years of hosting the event online, we’re excited to greet whisky and music lovers again from around the globe.”
