Released to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the founding of Lagavulin distillery by John Johnston in 1816, this eight-year-old Single Malt Scotch Whisky is big and smoky. 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.

Region A roaring bonfire from the coast of Islay.
Appearance Light-gold.
Body Light, growing pleasantly oily.
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.
