Due to the cancellation of this year’s Fèis Ìle (Islay Festival of Music and Malt) caused by the corona virus crisis, this year’s much anticipated bottlings will be available online.
|Diageo launches its Lagavulin and Caol Ila Féis Íle 2020 bottlings|
Lagavulin 20 Years Old Fèis Ìle 2020 (54% ABV) which is limited to 6000 bottles, has been matured in a combination of Refill, Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso sherry treated hogsheads.
Caol Ila 16 Years Old Fèis Ìle 2020 (53.9% ABV) which is limited to 3000 bottles, has been matured in a combination of Refill and Amoroso sherry treated hogsheads.
Lagavulin 20 Years Old Fèis Ìle 2020, is said to be a classic mature Lagavulin with a delightfully subtle extra twist of richness and power on the palate and in the finish. A powerful, smoothly sweet-smoky and delicious Lagavulin, from casks skilfully combined to enhance its spicy richness whilst keeping the keynote aromas and tastes.
Caol Ila 16 Years Old Fèis Ìle 2020, is said to be a richer Caol Ila with subtle aromas and sweet cleansing flavours on the palate. A powerful, smoothly sweet and delicious Caol Ila, its classic sweetness and power enhanced by secondary maturation.
