Lagavulin 12 and 16 year old limited anniversary editions

Later this year Lagavulin will present a second and third bottle for its 200 year anniversary. 

The first bottle was the 8 year old. 

The second a double matured 16 year old from batch lgv 4/505, at 43 ABV.

The third It will be a 12 Year old single malt, Limited Edition at a natural cask strength of 57,7% ABV. 

The label gives little information about chill filtration or addition of caramel colour, but the term "natural" would suggest something. 

The other labels quote a text. 

"The strange horse of Suinabhal" by William Black. 

"I hef been in Isla more as three times or two times myself, and I hef been close to the "Lagavulin" Distillery, and I know that it is the clear water of the Spring that will make the "Lagavulin" Whisky just as fine as new milk."

So more to come this year! Enjoy!
