A celebration of the people and craft that have made Lagavulin great over the last two centuries, its fragrant, tea-scented smoke alongside nose-drying, maritime aromas is unlocked with just a drop of water.
Inspired by the visit of Alfred Barnard to the distillery in the 1880s when he tried an ‘exceptionally fine’ eight-year-old from the distillery, this is a fitting tribute for the milestone.
With a light body that becomes pleasantly oily, the Lagavulin 8 Year Old palate boasts a magnificently full-on Lagavulin taste that’s somehow even bigger than you expect.
The limited edition, beautifully pristine presentation box makes it the perfect gift for lovers of peaty and powerful whiskies Serving Suggestion: Make time to enjoy neat in a whisky nosing glass, or with maybe just a drop of water.
Nose: black pepper and smoke notes. Orange and lemon zests.
Palate: light, typically of Lagavulin expressions. Rounded, smoky and warm, associated with a growing smoky aroma becoming dry.
Finish: clean, long and smoky. This elegant expression balances smoky aromas to powerful taste.
