With the publication of a new version of the label of a lagavulin 8 yo on the TTB website it has become clear that the “limited edition” 8yo 200 year anniversary edition is here to stay!

See: https://www.ttbonline.gov/colasonline/viewColaDetails.do?action=publicFormDisplay&ttbid=16320001000008

label as found on ttbonline.gov

I come to this “conclusion” based on the granted and published approval of the label. So the fact that there is a new label sorta implies the continuation of the 8 yo.
