Lagavulin 8 Years 200th Anniversary 70cl 48%vol. is an Islay single malt commemorating the 200th anniversary of the Lagavulin distillery, founded in 1816 by John Johnston. A limited edition that is powerful and smoky with sweet and spicy notes, the whisky was inspired by the 1880 visit of the famous distillate historian Alfred Barnard, when he tasted an "Exceptional Lagavulin eight years".
Lagavulin, from the Gaelic "lag a'mhuilin", which translated means "the depth next to the mill", is located on the south coast of Islay Island, near Port Ellen from where they get the malt, in the village of Lagavulin, near Solum Lochs, distillery water supply.
Officially the Lagavulin distillery dates from 1816, when John Johnston and Archibald Campbell build two sister distilleries, side by side. Eventually one of them becomes Lagavulin and absorbs the other, of which little is known, shortly thereafter.
During the period up to ten illegal distilleries around Port Ellen were reported, however, in the nineteenth century problems would arise in the form of legal skirmishes with neighbouring distillery Laphroaig.
A generation later, at the end of the nineteenth century, the two distilleries enter a legal cause, when Laphroaig cancels a trade agreement in which it had agreed to sell its whisky to Lagavulin for the production of blendeds, which at that time included White Horse, invented in
After breaching the contract, in retaliation, Lagavulin decides to block Laphroaig's water supply, going to trial again, the resource fails in favor of Laphroaig this time, in response, a year later, Lagavulin hires the manager of Laphroaig with the aim of recreating the stills and thus producing an exact whisky to that of the neighboring distillery. Fortunately the attempt failed and today we can enjoy both distilleries, it can be said that the relationships between the distilleries today are much more cordial.
The Lagavulin distillery is famous for the use of a slow distillation process in pear-shaped stills and the potent character with peat and smoke of its whisky aged in ex-bourbon barrels. Among the most recognized whiskies are 16-year-old Lagavulin, which has awarded the distillery dozens of prizes, including four consecutive double gold medals between 2005 and 2008 at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, as well as several gold medals since then. Diageo, owner of the distillery launches on the market in almost every edition of the "Diageo Special Realeases" a Lagavulin 12 years bottled at cask strength. On the part of the distillery there is also an annual launch in the form of distillers edition finished in barrels of Pedro Ximénez also very laureado.
