Lagavulin 8 Year Old Bottling Note

After the wonderful reception that the Lagavulin 8 Year Old 200th Anniversary Edition received when it was released in 2016, the Islay-based distillers decided to add this delicious expression to their permanent core range! As Alfred Barnard (author of The Whisky Distilleries of the United Kingdom) said of an 8 year old Lagavulin in the 1880s, this stuff is "exceptionally fine".

If you feel like broadening your horizons and experiencing Lagavulin as you never have before, then we heavily recommend The Lagavulin Hot Chocolate. We know that this may not appeal to some, but honestly you really should give it a try because it's absolutely gorgeous. You can find a recipe for it right here.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Salted popcorn, honey-roasted nuts, tarry ropes and light hints of freshly-chopped cedar. A touch of burnt sugar sweetness lingers.

Palate: Smokey peat appears first on the palate, followed by coriander seed, barley sugar, cumin powder, smoked kipper and marzipan.

Finish: Layers of apple crumble, toasted almond and ash. Another kick of cooking spices right at the end.

Lagavulin 8 Year Old Reviews

Ardbeg 10 in a different way

Totally agree with "ardbeg 10-ish" comment. I feel exactly the same about it. Fortunatly, it is more complex and the Peat do not takes over to much. Despite everything, I do prefer the 16 yo version.

Thank you !

...for making this a permanent fixture in your range. My favorite Laggy! Different from the 16 year old but with the familiar hint of peat and smokey sweetness in the Laggy tradition.

Ardberg 10-ish...

Very nice for a 8 yo. Peaty, dusty smoke, citrusy, salty fruitiness. Gets smoother and sweeter with water. Decently long finish. Pretty similar to Ardberg 10, if not as intense. Enough complexity and balance....me likes a lot.

better than 16 yrs old

I tried both 16 yrs and 8 yrs old variant of Lagavulin. In my humble opinion this one has richer taste that every true whiskey lover will appreciate.

cheap peat

Slept through this one. Ddn't know it existed. Locals weren't handling it. Enough. Got a bottle for a gift. Happy birthday. Happy days. Delicious. Not the 16yr but excellent. 16 yr costs $92.00 a bottle. this was $58.00ish. Could replace Laphroig as my go to everyday dram.

One for the true Islay Enthusiast

Don’t listen to the Lagavulin 16 fan boys, this is an absolutely must for true Islay fans. Love the nose, reminiscent for a fine mescal. Palate, damp ash with fruity citrus overtones. Truly epic. Finish, medium length.

Honestly, this stuff is the epitome of what an Islay whisky should be. Completely different to the 16, however that’s a good thing.

10/10 for £50.

My new go to staple Islay, this and Ardbeg 10 and Laphroaig QC.

Is this a joke?

Is this price a joke... This was the price when the bottling was limited, it's now a permanent expression and although it's spent half the time in cask it's more expensive than the 16... hmmm

Laggy Magic in just 8 years

A delicious Lagavulin. A younger spirit at almost cask strength. Upon popping the cork you know it is the younger sister of the Classic 16. Fresh fruity notes with the familiar Islay smoke and all the fixings in this mouth watering youthful spirit. Bravo Lagavulin!

Best of the Lagavulins

Lagavulin 16 is one of my go to whiskies. When I first tried the 8 I had low expectations. But what a surprise! The second time I hosted a tasting with 2 of my whisky-loving friends. We tasted the 8, 12 and 16. All three of us gave the 8 the highest score, filled by the 16.
