    Sniff: Of course, you can never be sure this IS actually Lagavulin, but the aromas coming from the glass make it a no-brainer for me. This is Lagavulin as the Ardbeg Wee Beastie was supposed to be: fierce, peaty, strong. Very, very reminiscent of the regular 8 years old. An excellent balance between the abundant peat bog and the sweetness brought by the vanilla.

    Sip: Soft and supple on the tongue, making it an oily experience and a delight to let it just circle around in the mouth. I always loved the “limited” 8 Years Old of the 200th anniversary year 2016 (haven’t tasted the regular one that was added to the core range). This single cask is an even more outspoken expression of it. Sadly we don’t know the age of this beauty, but I am guessing it’s between 6 and 8 years old.

    Swallow: Like swallowing distilled seawater, no other words for it. Very clean, delicately salty and maybe a bit short. But yeah, this is very pure stuff. I brings me back to one of my first visits to Islay, where Iain McArthur would let you taste a 8 year old sample of Lagavulin straight from the cask, and you would get down on your knees and beg for a whole bottle of it. Cooper’s Choice delivered this.

    Score: 89 points. Good old spirit driven whisky, and in this case from one of the best distilleries in the world.
