Lagavulin 8 Years Old

No rating
700 ml
  • Lagavulin nestles in a small bay on the southeast coast of Islay and produces its complex whiskies in pear-shaped "stills", the copper stills.


    Many different elements contribute to its unmistakably robust character, but the influence of the peat is particularly noticeable in the taste of this whisky.


    Alfred Barnard (a world-famous whisky journalist and chronicler) visited the distillery around 1880 and fell in love with this place: he tasted an 8-year-old whisky and

    described him as "exceptionally fine".


    Lagavulin 8 was released in conjunction with the distillery's 200th anniversary in 2016. It's meant as a throwback to the style of whisky Lagavulin may have been producing around the 1880s. That's when author, Alfred Barnard, visited all the distilleries in Great Britain, over 150 of them, and came away with the opinion that Lagavulin was just one of a few putting out single malt worthy of drinking on its own, as opposed to being solely destined for a blend. As of November 2017, this is whisky is now a core bottling for the distillery instead of a limited edition with new labels to follow.


    The nose showcases prominent salty and seashell notes, along with plenty of fruits-- peaches, apricots, apples. The palate is light and easy sipping, and continues with soft stewed fruits as well as honey and floral notes. Peat is most felt on the finish, with a touch of campfire, as salt, seashell and fruits return for a very consistent profile all the way through
