Originally released in 2016 to commemorate the Lagavulin distillery's 200th anniversary, this 8yo was added to the core range in 2017. Matured exclusively in refill American oak casks reducing cask influence and allowing the peat to punch through. Bottled at 48%.
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.
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.
