Lagavulin 8 Years Old
This bicentenary limited edition is magnificently full-on in flavour – a celebration of the people and craft that make Lagavulin great. Region Islay. 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.
