Light gold color. Nose is immediately quite soft with clean, fresh notes, faint hints of milk chocolate and lemon - developing fragrant, tea-scented smoke alongside nose-drying, maritime aromas. Body light, growing pleasantly oily. A magnificently full on Lagavulin taste that's somehow even bigger than you expect, and charred, with minty, dark chocolate. 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. The limited edition 8 Year Old calls for some special attention. Make time to enjoy neat in a whisky nosing glass, or with maybe just a drop of water.

Wine EnthusiastLook for a straw hue and unmistakably peaty, smoky scent. On the palate, fruity sweetness leads at first, quickly morphing into a billow of pungent peat smoke. Quite drying, and finishes fiery. Water tamps down the alcohol heat and brings more orchard fruit forward. Released in 2016 to honor Alfred Barnard, considered to be the first whiskey writer, as part of the 200th anniversary of Lagavulin.
