Lagavulin 8 Year Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Released to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the founding of Lagavulin distillery. It is big and smoky, with sweet spice and has a clean, long and smoky finish.
The nose is immediately soft with clean, fresh notes partnering faint hints of milk chocolate and lemon. It then develops fragrant tea-scented smoke alongside maritime aromas, with subtle cereal.
The palate is light in texture, with a magnificently full-on Lagavulin taste that's even bigger than you may expect: sweet, smoky and warming, with a growing pungency, then dry, with more smoke.
The finish is lovely: clean, very long and smoky. This is a polished and exquisitely crafted celebration of Lagavulin. It's a whisky to celebrate, in every sense.
