Lagavulin 8 year old - 200th anniversary (2016)
- Distillery: Lagavulin
This one is like most anticipated malt in the 2016 (yet). Any rarer Lagavulin is so hard to get, so I try to taste every which is easily available (yet).
Aroma: pleasant, fresh and clean. Lime and lemon. Seaweed and ashes. Bit of walnuts and pine nuts, lemon sorbet with vanilla. At the beginning it is more maritime than smoky. but then smoke and ashes builds up.
The ratings system that we use is based on personal opinion and reflects only a personal momentary impression about the tasted whiskey. We do not represent any producers of whiskey and we are not in the whiskey business ourselves. However, we have our personal sympathies for particular whiskeys. We are human, therefore the ratings that we give are subjective. Furthermore, they are given with comparisons to other whiskeys in mind. We decided to use convienent and widely used 100 points system.
