The Islay Jazz Festival, which is promoted by Jazz Scotland and the Islay Arts Association, starts from today and runs until Sunday, at venues across the island.

This latest limited-edition release, is said to deliver notes of dried fruits that mingle with a maritime briny smokiness on the nose, followed notes of sandalwood, vanilla, smoky bacon, eucalyptus, gunpowder and a treacly sweetness on the palate.

Commenting on the news, Colin Gordon, Distillery Manager at Lagavulin, said: “The Islay Jazz Festival has become a pilgrimage for many Scotch adorers around the globe and this year’s 21 year old bottling looks set to be an extra special edition as we celebrate 21 years of the festival.”

Limited to 2004 bottles, Lagavulin Islay Jazz 2019 Edition, is now available exclusively from the Lagavulin Distillery shop, for a RRP of £395.00.
