The festival, presented by Jazz Scotland and Islay Arts Association, will run from the 15 – 17 September 2023 and feature performances from some of Scotland’s most exciting and creative musicians.
Jordan Paisley, distillery manager at Lagavulin, says: “The Islay Jazz Festival is always a very exciting time for everyone on the island.
"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 has flavours of smooth dried fruit and walnut flavours.
There's a depth of character and complexity as Lagavulin’s intense smoke meets the rich fruitiness from the sherry casks, delivering a twist on the classically smoky flavours of the Islay distillery.
Lagavulin Jazz Festival 2023 exclusive bottling will only be available for purchase at the Lagavulin Distillery, with a retail price of £250 per 70cl, bottled at 53.9% ABV with 3,000 bottles available.
