Description

This bicentenary 200 years anniversary limited edition is magnificently full-on in flavor – a celebration to honor 200 Years of Lagavulin Distillery Managers.

Region

Islay.

Appearance

Deep, red-hued chestnut. Slow, lingering.

Nose

Profound, complex and dry overall. Rich yet elusive, it really takes time to open up, first offering liquid dried fruits; figs, dates or prunes and a trace of treacle toffee.

Body

Medium-rich, coating.

Palate

A voluptuous, oily texture, with a bitter-sweet and gingery, slightly drying start. Intense, with masses of charred wood, oak-smoked meats, honey, burnt treacle tart and ash.

Finish

Long, smooth, sweetly honeyed and elegant, with slowly rising fragrant wood smoke, ash, salt and a subtle, chilli like heat; followed by cooling eucalyptus.
