Lagavulin 8 Year Old 200th Anniversary Edition

The original whisky produced at Lagavulin was an eight year old malt whisky. In order to celebrate their bicentenary the distillery have produced a limited edition bottling at the original age statement.

The whisky itself shows much more influence from ex-bourbon casks than the official sixteen year old bottling. It also has a more intense set of smoke characteristics (wood smoke, peat smoke, ash) over a good body, and excellent length.

Tasting Notes:

Appearance: Light gold

Nose: Immediately quite soft with clean, fresh notes, faint hints of milk chocolate and lemon – developing fragrant, tea-scented smoke alongside nose-drying, maritime aromas

Body: Light, growing pleasantly oily

Palate: A magnificently full on Lagavulin taste that’s somehow even bigger than you expect, and charred, with minty, dark chocolate

Finish: A clean, long and smoky finish – subtle, minted smoke, chocolate tannins and finally warming, leaving the palate dry as sweet smoke lingers on the breath
