Lagavulin has announced the release of its distillery-exclusive Islay Jazz Festival bottling for 2023.


Celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, the Islay Jazz Festival runs from 15–19 September and will feature performances from musicians from across Scotland.


Lagavulin's Jazz Festival 2023 15 Years Old has been finished in sherry casks, which the distillery says has brought a "rich fruitiness" to its peated spirit. It has been bottled at 53.9% ABV, with only 3,000 bottles available.


Jordan Paisley, distillery manager at Lagavulin, said: "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."


The Lagavulin Jazz Festival 2023 exclusive bottling will only be available for purchase at the Lagavulin Distillery, with a retail price of £250.
