A limited edition Lagavulin released during the distillery's 200th anniversery celebrations in 2016. (Rumour is there is a standard 8yo on the horizon due to join the range in the coming year.) 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.
