SINGLE MALT SCOTCH WHISKY / 700ML / 48% ABV.
Initially released for their 200th anniversary year and brought back by popular demand, this is a magnificently full-on Lagavulin that is sweet, smoky and warming with a growing smoky pungency.
Colour: Light gold.
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.
Taste: 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.
