COLOR
Lagavulin 8 has a pale wheat or straw color, a little lighter than most chardonnays.

The nose hits you with the delicate aroma of smoke, light peat, lime, lemon drops, grass, grapes and grapefruit.
FLAVOR
The flavor is a delightful combination of sweet cream, burning caramel, vanilla, salt and honey.

COMMENTS
Much simpler than the older 16-year brother, but still complex enough to be enjoyable unto itself.
