Lagavulin Limited Edition 8 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Released to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the founding of Lagavulin distillery. It is big and smoky, with sweet spice and has a clean, long and smoky finish. One of the great classics from Islay.
Lagavulin is almost exclusively matured in ex-bourbon casks, meaning its fiery, uncompromising smoke and salted fish character comes storming out of the glass unhindered. It has converted untold numbers of people to whisky-drinking and remains the firm favourite of countless malt fans worldwide. Allocations of the standard 16 year-old are never adequate to satisfy demand for the product, resulting in frequent shortages. To ameliorate this difficulty, Diageo also release a cask strength 12 year-old almost every year, along with the vintage-dated Distiller's Edition, which has been finished in sweet Pedro Ximinez sherry casks and has won numerous awards in its own right.
