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

Amazing Youngens

This is great!
Sweet, sour, ashy and a bit oaky too.... that’s what i get at least. Oh and that burned top of a creme brullee.... Don’t compare this to the 16 please.... it’s something else for someone else...
I compared it to Ardbeg Wee Beastie which is more earthy and would say the L is a tiny bit more my cuppa than the A. And this comes from an Ardbeg fanboy...

Beautiful stuff

This 200th anniversary 8yr old was described as 'exceptionally fine' and I can confirm that to be true. Far more rich than the 16yr, much more peat and smoke which lingers in your mouth for ages afterwards. Add a couple drops of water and it instantly becomes more sweet while opening the dram up nicely. This is a brilliant expression of Lagavulin and I would highly recommend to anyone who enjoys peated whisky. Would I buy another bottle? ABSOLUTELY.

Don't buy!

This could be the worst Whisky I've ever tasted.48% so I tried adding a drop of water,did not help.Atrocious stuff and not cheap either.I could have got Laphroaig 10yr for $20 less.

Nothing like the 16Y

Very nice, takes a few sips (or maybe glasses) to “understand”.

Very disappointed. The flavor was way too light lacking body. To me it was not much better than a cheap watered down whisky. No where near qualified to even hold the title of of an Islay let alone the famed Lagavulin label.
I'm mixing the rest of the bottle to my everyday blended scotch. Either that or throw it away.

An excellent Scottish Carribean mix

A novice Lagavulin drinker, with only the 16 to compare. The 8 is lovely mixed with coconut water and a couple of ice cubes. The 16 is excellent straight. Again, beginner scotch drinker, just fortunate to have had the 16 as my first taste of this beautiful spirit.

A great discovery

Don't go comparing this to Lagavulin 16. It's a different beast altogether being much closer to Ardbeg 10. Light, smooth, and smoky with a finish that lingers long after the last drop. A great discovery.

Compared to the 16, it's like it isn't Lagavulin at all. I did not care for it. I'll drink it but wishing I was drinking the 16.....

I can't drink this

Sorry to all Lagavulin fan boys, which I am too, but what the hell is this ? When I bought the bottle couple month ago, I was so desapointed. instinctively, you compare it to the 16yo and you should not, it is a totally different taste profile. I thought I juste had to leave it a few month and try it again... I still cannot drink this. It is all about peat and strong alcohol and I do not understand the interst of drinking this "thing". Anyway... Being now more objectiv, it is from my point of view very similar to the Kilchomann Machir Bay, peatier for sure with less depth and more bitterness. The worst part of all of this : I still ask myself if my bottle has an "issue" or if it is just no my cup of tea and that's all, end of story.

Not ready to give a rating ...yet

Such a shock when the pale colour hit my snifter. Wasn't sure what I had. Re-read all the tasting notes on the side of the box. Truthfully, it took three nosings and palatings before I felt I had a Lagavulin in my hand.

I will continue the lessons...
