Tasting notes LAGAVULIN 8 yo 200° ANNIVERSARY

Nose: peat, citrus (lime) and cedar emerge from the very beginning. Some salty notes are also perceptible. Despite its young age, it isn’t very pronounced on the nose. Warm and enveloping.

Palate: rediscover the peat, which results rather measured and chiseled; in fact it is never excessive nor does it tend to cover the aromatic palette, compost of spices (black pepper and white pepper) and citrus (lime). Alcoholic gradation is good.

Finale: long persistency, that outlines notes of peat, citrus and spices. The salty and marine notes stay well perceptible.

A product which can not be easily found on the market. This bottling, although not being a miraculous product, results well structured and each characteristic is well modulated. A recommended Lagavulin.

RATING 87
