Interestingly, the application was filed for the usual 75cl but also half bottles, 1 liter and 1.75 liters.
Last week a few UK insiders had a preview of an undisclosed, supposedly rather excellent anniversary edition that would not be a Feis Ile release. Full details would be given in March but there’s a good chance they were talking about this Lagavulin 8 Years.
Update 01/03/2016: the news is now confirmed. It has been matured exclusively in re-fill American oak casks and should be available early April for around € 60.
Update 03/06/2016: check out my review of Lagavulin 8yo.
Apparently there are no indications of other anniversary editions, but there will be a special Feis Ile release, the annual Jazz edition and the yearly 12 Year Old later this year.
Also coming up:
- Glenrothes 1976 single cask #2681
- Compass Box The Circus (blended whisky)
- Highland Park ‘Ice Edition’ 17 Year Old
- The Macallan 65 Years in Lalique (46,3%, 450 btl., £ 23.000) – This is the final decanter which completes the Six Pillars Collection.
