Proof66 Notes

Lagavulin 8yr single malt scotch is a celebratory release commemorating the 200th anniversary of the distillery. In the press release, they note the whisky is aged entirely in American oak (presumably ex-bourbon casks) and considered "both challenging and serene at the same time." While young for the modern scotch market, they note that 8 years was considered "quite old back then" and an appropriate scotch as a tribute.

Islay single malts seem to be at their "peatiest" the younger they are, and this is no exception, this is a youthful whisky, I recommend a drop or two of water, heavy peat smokiness on the nose, a wisp of bacon, grassy notes, malty, in the taste there is little cask interaction, the burn is present, slight sweetness, I let it sit for a few minutes to open up, slight leather now in the nose, this is quite good, get it while you can, apparently only 20,000 bottles were put out in the US, $54.99 at my purveyors...recommended purchase
