Lagavulin 8 Year Old

70cl

A welcome addition to the Lagavulin and proof that (sometimes) age is not that important when it comes to whisky. Most tasters rank this just as high as the 16 year old and Distillers Edition releases. If anything it is more assertive and more smoky but it remains well balanced and creamy. Originally released to commemorate the 200th anniversary and now part of the core range.

Tasting Notes from the Producer
Aromas (without water) Quite soft with clean, fresh notes, faint hints of milk chocolate and lemon and then developing fragrant tea-scented smoke alongside nose-drying, maritime aromas, with subtle cereal. A trace of red berry beneath the smokiness, which comes sharply into focus.
Flavour A soothing light texture, with a magnificently full-on Lagavulin taste that’s somehow even bigger than you expect; sweet, smoky and warming, with a growing, smoky pungency, then dry, with more smoke. Charred, with minty, dark chocolate. Beautifully balanced.
